City Lawyer, Ahmednasir Adullahi faced backlash after he posted a photo comparing Homa Bay Governor Cyprian Awiti and Mombasa Governor, Ali Hassan Joho’s dress code.

The lawyer commented that Governor Awiti’s dress code does not give people hope or inspire confidence in him.

“If one cannot dress decently as a private matter, he cannot manage the public affairs of a county.” Ahmednasir added.

This post did not sit well with netizens and they were quick to rush to the defence of the Governor.

“Such a nonsensical tweet about a person’s fashion choices. The people of Homa Bay did not elect him for his clothes; neither does the more trendy 001 Governor deliver better results on account of his attire. This is childish & unmerited attack,” one user commented.

Even former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga came to the Governor’s defense commenting, “Governor Awiti is polite and humble. He’s a man of the people.”

Here’s some of the tweets from the post:
