Mixed Reactions As Uhuru Wears KSh 37 Million Watch (PHOTO)

President Uhuru Kenyatta recently sparked mixed reactions after stepping out rocking a KSh 37 million Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon wristwatch. 

The Head of State was first spotted with the expensive watch when he graced the Kenya Open over the weekend. 

Uhuru was also spotted with the watch during the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Kenya and Moderna. 

On Tuesday, March 8, the president was also seen with the watch when he met First Lady Margaret Kenyatta at the Kenya School of Government. 

According to the watchmaker, Alange-Soehne, the watch has a flyback chronograph with a jumping minute counter and a perpetual calendar with a moon-phase display.  

The watch also has a tourbillon with a patented stop-seconds mechanism. 

It is limited with only 100 pieces having been made. 

In 2017, Uhuru was spotted wearing a KSh 3.2 million Arnold & Son HM Perpetual Moon watch during a meeting at the Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri.

Reactions 

@joel_minai: Just wondering why would someone wear a mere watch worth a million shilling, when people are dying of hunger. Does that watch sense danger ahead or landmines? Does it tell the time that one will die or determine the exact time the world was made? 

@JahredGon: Time si ni Ile Ile? Why waste 37m on a mere watch. Just go to play store and download the latest and most advanced time app. 

@yukageorge: I wear a Casio plastic watch worth sh. 250. More than 100 million such watches exist in the world. This information is just as useless as the one you’ve tweeted. 

@JosephMucunu: What do you expect from a man who’s stashed more than KSh 3 billion in an offshore account in three different accounts lying idly for the last three years?
