Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has made his first appearance mixing with members of the public since the 9 August elections.
He has kept a low profile since the candidate he supported – Raila Odinga – lost the presidential vote to William Ruto. Mr Odinga is now challenging the result in court.
Mr Kenyatta was seen on a visit to the coastal city of Mombasa two days after the county elected a new governor, who is from the Azimio coalition that the president backed.
He appeared relaxed and had less than his usual security presence.
He came out of a restaurant and shook hands with the public as he walked on the streets alongside the outgoing and incoming governors.
President Kenyatta has never publicly congratulated his deputy, Mr Ruto, for his election win.,,
