President Uhuru Kenyatta lit up the mood at Nyayo Stadium after the Jamhuri day celebrations when he stopped to salute his wife and other leaders including former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
The gesture was unexpected as he normally shakes leaders hands before seating down.
Instead of shaking hands everyone’s hands he started by performing a salute gesture to the leaders and to his wife Margaret Kenyatta.

President Uhuru donned a military regalia to the event, an outfit that he normally wears in functions involving the military or armed forces.
