Vice President Rigathi Gachagua shifted from his usual official appearance to a new stylish design aboard a Kenya Air Force plane to Kisumu on Friday, September 23.
The DP wore a designer shirt that provoked mixed reactions from a section of TBEN online claiming whether it was Gucci or Versace.
He also matched the shirt with matching pants that deviated from his normal baggy pants trend. Gachagua then completed his look with black sunglasses and posed for photos with a big smile on his face.
To enhance his appearance, he wore stylish shoes that resembled Oxford designs, consisting of a mixture of imitation, calf and genuine patent leather.
However, the TBEN on Twitter couldn’t keep calm with Gachagua’s new stylish look. Many of them praised the DP for its new style.
“Riggy G to the World,” Jaycee posted.
Another posted “Alaa! Man Rigi amepiga looku‘ wrote the black Jew.

As far as the photographer takes much credit, Gachagua’s poses embodied perfect training for public performance. You would have mistaken him for a local hip-hop star.
The DP was joined by Kenyan Kwanza leaders, including female representatives Linet Toto (Bomet) and Njeri Maina (Kirinyaga) and former Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala.
He was received by Education CS George Magoha and the Governor of Kisumu, Anyang’ Nyong’o at Kisumu International Airport during his first visit to the lake city.
Gachagua is expected to grace the Gala Awards for the 94th Kenya Music Festival at Kisumu Girls High School. The Kenya Music Festival made a comeback after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
The DP recently assured TBEN that he will change his appearance in three months, saying he was aware that his fashion sense was a debatable topic.
In a media interview during a training session, Gachagua stated that he intended to dress well and attribute his poor clothing to intensive campaigns.
“People have been asking questions about how I dress, but I want to tell them that I didn’t have the luxury of thinking about clothes. I cared about my life and stayed safe. But now that it’s all over, in another three months, people will like what they see,”
He also went to the gym to reduce his weight by about 10 kg from 94 to about 84 kg.
