    "The Versace Barocco shirt is crafted in the finest quality silk twill featuring the bold Barocco print first seen in Gianni Versace's FW'91 collection," the shirt is described on the firm's website.

    The shirt which has a 'Versace Tribute' label, is a long sleeve and a button-up. It is 100% silk and dry clean only recommended. 

    Versace designers also recommend one to handle it delicately, not to bleach or tumble dry and should be ironed on low temperature. It is designed for the male gender and comes in different sizes. 

    Joho matched it with black jeans, a black cap engraved with his name and white rubber shoes. 

    The governor is famous for splashing money on expensive designs. On Monday, January 6, he got Kenyans talking after he was spotted with a Versace worth Ksh 46,000. He has also been spotted in a pair of Louis Vuitton sneakers worth Ksh 344, 000, another one worth Ksh 92,000, and a gold watch worth Ksh 23.4 million.

    On Thursday, July 9, Joho shared insights into his wealth stating that he earned it through a hard life. The ODM Deputy Party leader stated that he lives his life independently with resilience, tolerance and philanthropically.

    The Governor noted that he made his first million at the tender age of 20.
