Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli skipped President Kenyatta's inauguration despite earlier indications that he would attend.
Instead, Tanzania sent vice president Samia Suluhu to represent President Magufuli at the ceremony.
Kenya and Tanzania have had frosty trade and diplomatic relations following the election of President Magufuli in October 2015, derailing business between the two neighbours to the detriment of entrepreneurs who depend on it.
