A white -shirt Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko wore during his dramatic arrest last Friday reportedly costs $531 (KSh53,000).
A search on the internet revealed that the t-shirt, which got torn during the arrest, is a tropical logo print T-shirt with a cotton crew neck and goes for $531, according to global fashion store Ikrix.
Sonko, who was released on bail on Wednesday after spending five days in police custody over graft accusations, leads a flashy lifestyle, especially when it comes to dressing. He has never shied away from showing his love for Italian fashion powerhouse, Versace products including shoes, t-shirts, jackets, chains, and belts, among others.
Sonko, 43, recently caused a stir online after he splashed photos of his gold-coated Versace-inspired dining room table and seats, in what some social media users termed as the highest show of opulence by a public office holder.
As expected, some Kenyans online combed through the internet and established the cost of the t-shirt, which according to Ikrix, was designed for the female gender.
