Malawi First Lady Gertrude Mutharika was against the talking point on Wednesday for her sense of style.
The President’s wife was criticised for dressing like a character in a drama play when she put on her dark blue head gear, with many people commenting on social media that she “failed to kill it” but that she looked awful.
