Chad's foreign minister Moussa Faki was elected as the chairman of the African Union commission on Monday. Faki's main rival in the last round of voting at the AU was Kenya's top diplomat Amina Mohamed.
Surprisingly, Kenyans across social media celebrated the loss of their foreign minister, arguing that a vote for Amina was a "vote for status quo, impunity, extrajudicial killings and corruption."
Below are some of the top reactions coming from Kenyans as they digest the results on Twitter using the hashtag, #WhyAminaLost.
