Burundi president sets internet abuzz after receiving wife as ‘special guest’ at State House

There’s always a smile plying on President Uhuru’s lips whenever he meets the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta in public be it in official or not-so-official functions.

But this should be obvious given the two share more than just sheltering under one roof at State House.

However, Burundi President Pierre Nkurunzinza has stunned netizens- and managed to create a buzz in the process- after receiving his wife as ‘special’ guest at his presidential palace Monday, September 30.

In the picture that has gone viral on Twitter, President Nkurunzinza is pictured standing next to First Lady Denise Nkurunzinza who paid him an official visit to present awards she received on account of her humanitarian work.

A tweet shared by Burundi State House showed the First Lady and the President in a very official pose.

The photos elicited mixed reactions with some of the netizens wondering whether it was necessary for the president to put up such a show.

However, Nkurunzinza is not new to controversy.  In May this year, the President made headlines for publicly gifting his 12-year-old daughter for behaving well at home.
