President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua on Saturday morning attended the Youth Connekt Africa Summit at KICC, Nairobi.
The duo brought a refreshing and relatable vibe to the youth summit, departing from their usual designer suits and embracing a more casual and approachable style.
Both Ruto and Gachagua chose attire that resonated with the youthful energy of the event, demonstrating a genuine effort to connect with the audience.
The President, typically seen in formal and Kaunda suits, opted for a smart-casual look, blue jeans, well-fitted shirt paired and sneakers.
He might have skipped the tie, further contributing to the relaxed atmosphere of the youth summit.
DP Gachagua embraced a more laid-back style, choosing comfortable yet presentable white tracksuit with a touch of gold which had his name brand 'Riggy G'.
