Kenyan president's office denies claims he is 'missing' after China trip

Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta (L) shakes hands with China's President Xi Jinping in May 2017.

(CNN)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.
"The President is around, it doesn't mean that because he is not seen in public he is not there, he has an office where he goes every day and he is working on several things," Kanze Dena, the spokesperson, said in a series of tweets addressing the rumors on Monday.
