Photo showing Uhuru, Magufuli's 'inner characters' goes viral on social media

Both men look happily to the cameraman, indicating the relaxed atmosphere of their conversation, but this did not stop some Kenyans from interpreting the picture to mean that Uhuru was being bossy while Magufuli is the quintessential people's servant.

The picture.

A picture showing President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Tanzanian counterpart John Magufuli seated in dramatically different poses at a meeting this afternoon has gone viral on Kenyan social media sites. The picture shows the two men sitting on identical comfy wooden armchairs, with a square coffee table separating them. While the Tanzanian president is captured sitting straight in a humble pose, with his hands clenched in a lower position, Uhuru leans back on the chair and has both his hands on the arms of his chair.

Both men look happily to the cameraman, indicating that their conversation was relaxed, but this did not stop some Kenyans from interpreting the picture to mean that Uhuru was being bossy while Magufuli is the quintessential people's servant. It is not clear who took the photo which by this evening had been shared on hundreds of Facebook and Twitter accounts.
