President Uhuru Kenyatta is talk on social media after a picture of him embracing former CNN anchor Zain Varjee during the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) at the United Nations Office complex went viral.

President Uhuru and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron was among over 4,700 dignitaries attending the Fourth Session of the UNEA at the UN complex in Nairobi.

In a twist, Verjee claimed that she used a boda-boda to the session where the viral photo was taken.

“So much traffic at the UN today, I had to take a boda-boda to be in time to host #OnePlanetSummit thanks to John for getting me there in time! #nairobijam #KenyaFranceRelations,” she tweeted.

Verjee was born and raised in Kenya. Here are some of the hilarious comments posted by netizens on social media;
