Nairobi – The hashtag #UhuruChallenge was trending in Kenya on Monday, as people made fun of President Uhuru Kenyatta's "perceived penchant for launching projects and his communications team's use of flowery language to describe him".  

According to BBC, Kenyatta's critics said some of the projects he said he was launching were already under way or had already been carried out. 

Kenyatta last week "launched" a footbridge in the coastal city of Mombasa.

Following this tweet, Kenyans took to social media, launching their own 'mundane' projects while others used it as a way to criticise Kenyatta's leadership  .

 

Local publications such as The Star also couldn't resist poking fun at the east African leader.
