President Uhuru Kenyatta had a busy day as he crisscrossed the city Saturday accepting endorsements from friendly political parties before his convoy made its way into Bomas of Kenya where he accepted his own party’s affirmation.

But colourful as the events of his political fortunes were, it was the new shirt he donned that was the real talk in town – and beyond.

When pictures of Uhuru’s new apparel  hit the internet Saturday, compliments came from across the globe, mainly from the United States and Europe.

From  Nairobi to Milan to Atlanta and in-between, Kenyans took to social media to express their views over the president’s attire.

But who was behind the president’s new look?

Ksnmedia.com can now reveal that the shirt that is causing so much vibe was designed locally (in Nairobi) by fashionista Carol Pulei.

Ms Carol Pulei: You can watch her video below.

Ms Pulei runs an apparel shop on Ring Road in Kilimani and she beat a number of other Kenya designers and won a tender to create the Jubilee presidential flag bearer’s shirt to be worn during what a State House insider described as “one of the most important occasions on the president’s calendar.”

Here are a few of the comments:

@JOSHOWEN wrote on twitter: “The dude looks very cool in the shirt. Wonder who’s behind that art?”

@Vitamax in Atlanta said: “I would like a shirt like the one worn by the president today.”

John Kaira wrote on Facebook: “That’s my president. Just the shirt can make me vote for him.’ Tano tena!”

Karen Adhiambo wrote: “Wow, that is a cool shirt. At least it is different from the purple-ish Kitenge shirt that has been his favorite but which has chujukad over time. Who is the designer?”

@dennisitumbi tweeted: “Good job Carol Pulei  She is the designer who came up with the beautiful shirt worn by President Kenyatta today. She hustled for a chance, she got it and it was great. Much respect Carol.”

Where can I get a shirt like that? wondered UK based Waigwa George on Instagram.

Njeri Osaak wrote on FB:  “It certainly caught my eye too. Simple but makes you go “mhmn!”

A few though were of a contrary opinion, with one surmising that the shirt was bought with taxpayer’s money.

Wilfred Asiago Bosire wrote: Using tax payers money for his selfish ends.
