Kenyans are not happy following Foreign Affairs Chief Administrative Secretary Ababu Namwamba’s recent dress code during a meeting in South Africa.
Namwamba on Monday travelled to South Africa to represent President Uhuru Kenyatta at the SADC Solidarity Conference.
Wearing denims and a tight Tshirt, the politician angered Kenyans for dressing like a “Congolese musician” yet he was on an official duty to represent the Head of State.
On Twitter, he was roasted by Kenyans who wondered why he chose the outfit. Unfazed, however, the former legislator was quick to note that “I travel easy, and dress smart for officials.”
“Just got to love KOT, don’t you! Enjoyed this “Ababu-Terrah clad” brouhaha amidst the bustle of preparing to return home from representing my boss, my President in Pretoria. On dress code thingie, I travel easy, and dress smart for officials. Denim is dope. Thaz my style buddiez!” he wrote on social media.
However, Ababu Namwamba is not the only one who has been on the limelight for dressing inappropriately for an event. Early this week Nana Gecaga, the CEO of KICC also was also bashed for attending an official meeting in a t-shirt and jeans.
Official business na umevaa kama Awilo Longomba.
