Iain Walker expresses his preference of African Prints to suits


The United Kingdom’s High Commissioner to Ghana, Iain Walker has said he prefers to be dressed in African prints.

According to him, the weather in Ghana is not so favourable for wearing shirts, suits and ties and the best in style is to look for African Print.

In a conversation with Kwabena Kyenkyenhene Boateng on 21 Minutes on Ghanaweb, Mr Iain Walker said he loves African Prints and that they are stylish.

“I do love to wear them. They are stylish, and the weather here is better than being in shirt and tie and suits”, he told KKB.

The High Commissioner who has tried to emulate some Ghanaian culture also said he enjoyed ‘Kofi Brokeman’ or some roadside roasted plantain.

His predecessor, Jon Benjamin has had a lot to do outside his core duties of a diplomat including using social media to comment on trending issues and trolls.

But Mr Iain Walker has a different style altogether, and it is evident that African Prints and Kofi Brokeman have grown a place in the commissioner’s heart.
