The chief spokesperson for Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta denied claims Kenyatta was absent at public events after speculation went rife about his whereabouts on social media.

Tweeting with the hashtag #FindPresidentUhuru, Kenyans over the weekend said Kenyatta had not been seen publicly since he traveled to China in April.

Kenyatta traveled to Beijing in April to attend the second Belt and Road Forum where he met Chinese President Xi Jinping and sealed bilateral agreements with China.

The spokesperson said she was "shocked" by claims that Kenyatta had not been seen since he returned from the trip.

She said the president was present at a meeting with international health organization Global Fund earlier in May.

The office also tweeted a photo of Kenyatta in his office.
