Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti on Friday, November 11, apologised to her supporters after a fashion mishap that saw her trolled online for the better part of the week.

A photo of the county boss wearing a baggy coat went viral on Tuesday, November 8, as a section of Kenyans trolled her over what they termed a "poor dress code".

The governor, who was celebrating her birthday, had shared the photo on her Facebook page to update her followers on her day's activities.

"Today I decided to mark my birthday by engaging with Machakos County residents on the final day of the 2-week long Public Participation forums I have been holding in all the 40 wards in Machakos County," Ndeti wrote on Facebook.

"I thank God for blessing me with another year. This is another chance for me to serve residents of our great County of Machakos."

Kenyans, however, overlooked the message and shifted their attention to her dress code, sharing the photo widely on social media.

Some netizens taunted Ndeti with some claiming she had sought the services of the tailor of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, who has in recent months been a victim of online trolls over his oversized suits.

"It seems Wavinya Ndeti has hired the tailor who was sacked by Riggy G [DP Rigathi Gachagua's moniker]," one Patric Safari remarked while referring to Gachagua's new and dapper dress code.

Another tweep, Amos Jeruiyot, wondered if the governor's tailor was related to President Yoweri Museveni's fashion designer.

“Is your tailor related to Museveni's tailor?” Jeruiyot wrote.

Wavinya Ndeti regrets dress code

Reacting to the viral memes on Friday, Ndeti regretted the fashion mishap saying she won't disappoint Kenyans again.

Ndeti, while sharing photos of her in well-fitting trendy outfits, said she knows all that Kenyans want is to see her smartly dressed.

"Lakini nyinyi wakenya, enyewe mmeniweza. One thing I now know is that you love me being smart. Sitadissapoint tena. Nowadays I care more about your needs. Love you guys," she captioned the photos.

Earlier, the governor had acknowledged Kenyans' concerns with the comment, "It was just one of those days. Poleni."

During the event attended by hundreds of Machakos residents, the county chief was treated to a surprise by renowned TikToker David Moya.
