Unlike before when politicians were hell-bent on wearing suits and ties of late they seem to have chosen to well dress down more casually.
The current crop of leaders seems to have taken a more laid-back approach to their style and I must say I applaud their wardrobe team because looks have been served.
The big 'Waheshimiwa' are no longer showing up for events, and campaign trails 24/7 in black/ navy blue suits and ties.
Below is a list of some of the politicians who have pulled off some cool casual looks over the months.

On his social media pages, Joho has been photographed wearing a Cotton Hawaiian shirt with Tropical King Print valued at Ksh 92,000 and another Versace Gold Barocco print silk sweater pegged at Ksh 89,000.
He also reportedly possesses a Versace Embroidered Medusa shirt that goes for Ksh63,000 and a pair of sneakers that would set you back Ksh 34,000.
2) William Samoei Ruto
