If you thought that President Kenyatta only collected high-end watches, you might actually be wrong.

He appears to have developed a penchant for locally made summer shirts, and is asking that he connects you to his shirts-plug, for a good reason.

In a Tweet by State House on Sunday, President Kenyatta asked Kenyans to wear locally made clothing to support local industries.

His Tweet also bore a colorful collage of photos in which he was wearing his favourite floral-motif shirts.

The statement from the president came just a day after he announced a deliberate and sustained Government strategy aimed at reviving Kenya’s textile industry.

“The revival of Kenya’s leading textile factories among them Rivatex, Thika Cotton Mills and Ken Knit among others, is a deliberate and sustained Government strategy aimed at benefitting cotton farmers, growing local industries and creating jobs for the youth,” President Uhuru said

President Kenyatta has been making a fashion statement with the colorful shirts that he wears outdoors.

Although he sometimes ends up as a meme, the president is fully aware that the memes are temporary, but the style is eternal.
