Breach of Protocol, Senator Cherargei Reacts to this Photo of Uhuru, Ruto & Ndayishimiye

After handing over the reins of power to him, President William Ruto and his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta today had their first public face-to-face meeting. A busy peacekeeping assignment saw the retired Uhuru Kenyatta successfully break a cease-fire between the Ethiopian government and the Tigray rebels.

After that mission was a success, Uhuru turned his attention to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a recent EAC member, where he has been attempting to broker a cease-fire between the M23 rebels and the DRC government. Presidents William Ruto of Kenya and Evariste Ndayishimiye of the DRC both participated in Uhuru's high-profile meeting at today's event.

President Uhuru Kenyatta (rtd) was positioned between President William Ruto and Everiste as the leaders made their way to the event. This arrangement, however, infuriated Nandi Senator Cherargei, who claimed that it violated protocol for Ruto to be at the other end and Uhuru to be in the middle of the presidents.

Cherargei said that Ruto should have been in the middle of Uhuru and Evariste rather than the other way around.

"Breach of protocol: The president, H.E. @WilliamsRuto, should be in the center, followed by H.E. @GeneralNeva, and the special envoy for Congo's peace, Uhuru, should be on the outer edge. These are presidential etiquette requirements from a global perspective. Happy evening." Congressman Cherargei
