Kenya: Hilarious Memes of Kenyatta's State of the Nation Address

President Uhuru Kenyatta delivering his State of the Nation Address at Parliament Buildings on April 4, 2019.

Kenyans creatively reacted to the President Uhuru Kenyatta's State of the Nation address using memes.

Most online users taunted the President's opening statement that "the state of the nation is strong" and his emphasis that there is no turning back on the war against corruption.

Me when Uhuru said that he will fight corruption. #SOTNKe2019#StateoftheNation

Nothing new that President Uhuru Kenyatta is addressing in the #StateoftheNation address.

It would even be better if he adds adjectives like "My Corrupt Administration.." bla bla bla

UNRELENTING Uhuru "fighting corruption"

On the state of the economy and the Big four agenda, creative Kenyans used memes to express displeasure.

If you listen to president Uhuru Kenyatta listing Kenya's developments/achievements for the last one year and this years ambitions, one might be tricked to believe we're like this with Singapore and Japan.#StateOfTheNation #SOTNKe2019
