First Lady Melania Trump criticised for 'colonial' hat choice in Kenya

The sartorial choice attracting the most current scrutiny - and the choice Trump was specifically asked about in front of the Sphinx on Saturday - was a pith helmet, which she wore while she toured Nairobi National Park in Kenya on Friday. She wore a white pith helmet, which was worn by Europeans in African colonies.

During her whistlestop five-hour stay, the US First Lady was scheduled to visit the Pyramids of Giza and the new National Museum under construction next door.

The First Lady wraps up her 7 day trip to Africa and will be returning to Washington on Sunday.

Melania Trump, who is in Africa to promote her children´s welfare programme, began her trip in Ghana, where she visited mothers and their newborns, and toured a former slave trading fort.

US First Lady Melania Trump shakes hands with First Lady of Kenya Margaret Kenyatta as she boards her military airplane prior to departing from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, October 6, 2018, as she heads to Cairo, the final stop on her week-long trip through four countries in Africa. "It's very emotional", Trump said after her visit.

Chelsea Fans Enjoying Jose Mourinho Struggle But Still Respect Him - Blues Legend
It's no exaggeration that Manchester United and Jose Mourinho's current situation seems to be worsening with every passing day. Kenedy has completed 11 take-ons in the Premier League this season, more than twice the total managed by any teammate.

However, her choice of headgear has been questioned.

She then made a brief stop in Malawi where she toured a primary school. "It's a reflection of her outdated understanding of Africa".

"I'm not elected, he's the president", the First Lady said. The people love her, and she loves them!

But it was her attire which drew concern on Twitter, as she donned a white pith hat, with her riding pants and boots. She came here without Donald Trump and has managed to avoid some of the more uncomfortable situations that previous visitors have faced: President George W Bush encountered elephants mating when he embarked on a safari in Botswana.

Mrs. Trump seemed reticent at first but she eventually stepped down from the platform she was standing on to take a large milk bottle with a big red nipple and feed some of the orphaned elephants being raised at the park a few miles outside of downtown Nairobi.
