In an interview on TV 47 on Friday, November 3, Ashok, the man behind President Ruto’s Kaunda suits said Gachagua does not dress like the country’s second in command.
While criticizing the Gachagua’s dressing managers, Ashok said the type of clothes that the deputy president wears can only be worn by an ordinary Kenyan.
“The people behind the Deputy President do not value much how he looks in public. He wore basically what every typical Kenyan man would wear; a floral shirt, jeans, and sneakers,” Ashok said.
He said if the deputy president succeeds President William Ruto, he will have to find new styles for his dressing.
“If he is going to be the next president he needs a style/brand,” he said.
Ashok was speaking in reference to DP Rigathi Gachagua who on Thursday, November 2, met United Kingdom King Charles III on the Kenyan coast.
During his meeting with the king, the second in command wore blue jeans, a floral short-sleeved shirt, and sneakers.
Gachagua has been named the worst-dressed politician in Kenya. His followers once asked him to consider hiring a better stylist.
The former Mathira Member of Parliament last year told off Kenyans who were criticizing him because of his dress code.
He said that he didn’t have time to sit pretty as he had other priority matters that needed his attention.
“We did not have the luxury to come out here and work out and sit pretty, we had to do 10 meetings every day and that is how by the help of God we were able to have victory,” Gachagua said.
