Honourable Mike Sonko has expressed that it was not right for the palace to ferry the presidents in one bus.

Cannary Mugume who is an investigative journalist and senior anchor at nbstv Said that African presidents are being ferried to Buckingham palace like students.
He said,” African Presidents attending the Queen’s burial ferried around in a bus like high school students from my home town Mbarara going for a trip to Didi’s world( amusement park), Kansanga.
Another Netizens expressed,” African presidents have hundreds of body guards in Africa but in the west, they feel safe without them. Why do our leadersfear fellow hewers of wood and drawers of water?”
Another netizen said,” The beast was flown to London for US President Joe Biden while African Presidents are driven by bus by president Emmerson Mnangagwa. African leaders had to even find a driver among themselves.”
Africa Facts zone said,” Kenya’s president William Ruto, Tanzania’s Samia Suluhu and other African leaders rode in a bus to attend queen Elizabeth II’s state reception in the UK. USA’s President Joe Biden was allowed to ride in his bulletproof limousine.
Ndindi Nyoro said, Throwing all African presidents in one bus is pure racism. Whites are basically telling you that they can disregard you and your leaders. But here in Kenya when a white man arrives roads are cleared and Kenyas made to wait in traffic jams.”
