Machakos governor, Wavinya Ndeti, on Friday, November 11, explained the reason behind her new dress code.
While addressing her followers on her social media pages, Wavinya promised never to fail Kenyans again as she cared more about their needs.
“Kenyans, you have really overwhelmed me. One thing I know now is you love me for being smart.
"I will not disappoint you again. Nowadays I care more about your needs. Love you guys,” she stated.
In a viral photo that elicited debate on her fashion, her followers argued that she was awfully dressed. The photo was captured during a meeting with Machakos residents on her birthday.
The governor was dressed in an unflattering beige skirt suit, a blue top, and a pair of equally dark-coloured shoes in the photo.
Wavinya, thereafter, shared photos where she looked all glammed up from head to toe to prove she overhauled her wardrobe.
Her post, however, elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans who claimed that she borrowed a new leaf from Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.
"I want to dress like you when I grow up. Never pull out that shocker again,” Nyandiek Achieng’ remarked.
"You hired a tailor that was previously fired by Gachagua?" questioned Dennis Ronoh, adding a laughing emoji.
"The designer we knew is back. The one who told you to wear sackcloth should be fired. We can't accept such. No!” Sossorisso Surri lamented.
DP Gachagua, like Wavinya, was trolled for months on his unfitting suits. Gachagua apologized to Kenyans and promised to look sharper.
Speaking at his Karen residence on Tuesday, September 13, the DP attributed his poor dressing to an alleged witchhunt by the government.
"Many people have been raising questions about how I dress. I had no luxury of looking at how I dressed.
"My eyes were always over my shoulders and taking care of my family," he defended himself.
