Kenya: Tanzania President Suluhu Changes Her Wardrobe en Route to State House

Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu, who arrived in Nairobi Kenya on Tuesday morning for a two-day state visit to Kenya, had a wardrobe change on her way to State House.

President Suluhu, who was sworn in last month after John Magufuli's death, also landed in the country wearing a mask, keeping tradition of donning one when on foreign trips.

She is known to choose when she wears a mask in public, routinely abandoning it in Tanzania but wearing it when out of the country.

After landing at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), Suluhu was seen in a trouser suit that is beige in colour and a brown hijab. On her feet, she wore a pair of brown shoes.

On arriving at State House, Nairobi, she was seen in an entirely new wardrobe from head to toe, which included a pink hijab to match her burgundy trouser suit and a pair of black shoes.

The Tanzanian Head of State was forced to use the Southern Bypass to avoid the traffic madness that characterises Mombasa road due to ongoing Nairobi Expressway constuction.

She had her entourage use the Southern Bypass, then headed to Lang'ata road, Mbagathi road, and then accessed State House on her visit official to Kenya since being sworn in.

On Tuesday afternoon, Suluhu visited the late President Jomo Kenyatta's mausoleum and she was in the evening hosted by President Uhuru Kenyatta for an official State dinner at State House, Nairobi.
