Kenyans on Twitter on Wednesday bashed Uganda President Yoweri Museveni’s attire after his arrival in Mombasa.
Museveni who is on a two-day State visit to Kenya landed at the Moi International Airport wearing a black suit, a yellowish tie and his trademark cream hat.
This was a very “official” attire compared to that of President Uhuru Kenyatta who wore a white linen shirt and a black trouser.
Even as Museveni greeted President Uhuru Kenyatta and other officials at the airport, Kenyans asked if Museveni had been advised on the weather at the Coast.
According to the weather forecast, it is 33 degrees in Mombasa and the dress code of any person visiting the place is likely to be light clothes as compared to a full suit.
In Mombasa the only time it is cool is during the night, when there is the sea breeze.
But, not all nights are cool and therefore light clothes are ideal since they allow your body to cool faster.
@BridgetMburugu said “How will “President Museveni” survive in coast for two days in suit and tie.”
“Someone tell Museveni that even if you don’t have a coast when visiting Mombasa you dress in bright colours,” @SurveyorOhato
@s_gidy said “Really Museveni ……? Dressed like that….? …in Mombasa…..?”
“Koti na hiyo joto yote ya coast,” @Johnte_83 said.
@EdwardKCheruiy1 said “Sir, take off off your blazer and tie please. It’s 32 degrees Celsius.”
“Your Excellency Mombasa today is 33 degrees kindly remove your suit and the cowboy hat you will be boiling , Fire your wardrobe manager today,” @gamollo89 said.
