Joho's campaign underwear raise brows

19 August 2016, 08:11 Gabriel Ngallah

Mombasa - Photos of male and female underwear branded 'Joho Tena - 2017' have emerged on social media, raising brows. 

The photos of the bright underwear have the bright Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) colors.

Locals have criticized the strategy saying it is a total shame for such a leader to use underwear in his political campaigns.

“This is not funny but shameful. How can you wear an underwear bearing Joho's name and you go sleep with your husband? Will that not amount to divorce?” posed woman politician Farida Rashid.

The fresh political strategy according to the Governor's close allies was to be launched during last years’ famous ‘Tukutane Mombasa’ Cultural festival though it did not happen. 

Many of Joho’s critics have rubbished the whole underwear idea as useless.

A local resident, Mohammed Said raised an issue with the strategy saying it is not worth it as underwear is a private affair.

“If you will put on these boxers or any other inner garment with the label Joho tena 2017, then you need to walk naked for the campaigns to be effective,” he added.

The Governor is yet to comment on the matter.
