Kenyans went berserk on Wednesday after President Uhuru Kenyatta posted a tweet in French.

KOT went wild under the President's post with speculation of what Uhuru had posted in the Tweet.

Some wondered whether this was an opening for politicians to start speaking foreign languages, with on tweep asking if Au envoy Raila Odinga will tweet in German.

President Kenyatta posted the tweet as he welcomed French President Emmanuel Macron who arrived in Kenya for a two-day State visit.

Here are some of the funny reactions from Twitter:
