Uhuru’s new shirt trends in Kenya, US and beyond – Photos

Published

BY BMJ MURIITHI

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.

Jiweke Tavern owner collapses, dies in his house

Published

on

Jiweke Tavern Restaurant owner John Keige has died.

The city tycoon collapsed and died outside outside his home in Nyari Estate, Nairobi.

He was quickly rushed to Nairobi Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

According to his domestic employees, Keige had just completed taking lunch, and decided to take a walk but collapsed moments after getting out of his house.

“Boss had just finished having lunch when he decided to go jogging. A few steps outside the gate, he collapsed,” One of his workers told The Standard.

Confirming the businessman’s sudden death, Keige’s sister Elizabeth Keige said his brother died on Tuesday afternoon, July 7 and he will be laid to rest on Tuesday, July 14.

He will be burried at a private funeral at the family rural home at Muruka in Kandara, Murang’a county.

Rumours had it that the tycoon died from COVID-19 but his doctor dismissed the claims saying he died of a heart attack.

Jiweke Tavern is located off Ngong Road in Nairobi.

In April, the entertainment joint made headlines after it reportedly refused to host a group of atheists on Easter Weekend.

The club is hailed for its consistent good service provision from the bartender to the bouncers.
