Former Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi has hit out at Kenyans criticising President William Ruto over the cost of his shoes.

A section of Kenyans have for the last few days been discussing whether it was right for the Head of State to wear expensive clothes.

This is after some of the netizens claimed Ruto wore a Ksh150,000 pair of shoes during the Madaraka Day celebrations.

Photos of Ruto with the expensive pair of shoes emerged during the celebrations that were held at Masinde Muliro Stadium on Kanduyi, Bungoma County.

But as Kenyans debate on whether it’s right for the Head of State to own expensive items, Havi has sided with him.

In a post on his X handle, the former Westlands parliamentary seat candidate on a UDA ticket the price of the said shoe is not something that Kenyans should be complaining about.He termed the debate as “aggravated foolishness”.

“I do not understand why some of you expect the President of the Republic of Kenya to wear this worn out pat pat or akala sus,” Nelson Havi said in part of his post.

“Honestly speaking, a shoe worth Kshs 150,000 for the President is not anything to complain about. Let us stop this aggravated foolishness,” he added.

This was not the first time Kenyans were debating about the cost of an item worn by the President.In the past, there has been discussions about the cost of his watch, belt among others.

Kenya Kwanza’s Cabinet Secretaries have also not been spared with Transport’s Kipchumba Murkomen the most talked about as far as wearing expensive clothings is concerned.
