Flamboyant Nairobi lawyer Donald Kipkorir is back with his spendthrift ways, this time flying in his personal tailor for an eight-hour flight to Nairobi from – wait for this – Italy.
What’s more, the tailor, one Roberto Rizzoti, embarked on this 12,000km return trip with aim of ‘taking measurements for more suits’.
Kipkorir without doubt spent significantly to bring Rizzoti to town.
The cheapest return ticket between this route could be available at Sh90,000 while the most expensive retails at about five times that amount.
This not factoring extra costs such as accommodation, transport and meals.
Kipkorir confirmed that he had indeed flow in his tailor with a post on Facebook.
“I asked my Italian Tailor Roberto Rizzoti to come bring suits and take measurements for more,” he wrote.
Kipkorir, who is said to be a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, also suggested the new wardrobe could help him wipe of the disappointment of the recent political setback.
He is known to have openly backed the election of Raila Odinga in the August elections, even though the opposition leader looks set to miss out on the presidency, after the Supreme Court upheld President Uhuru Kenyatta’s win in the October 26 repeat polls.
“We can lose on political lanes, but not on sartorial ones,” he said.
From flying his close associates to celebrate birthday parties in Europe to purchasing state-of-the-art cars, Kipkorir is fast curving a reputation as a show-off on social media. Only that he isn’t bothered much of what people think about his extravagant ways.
