“A leader is like a mirror in society so it comes as no shock if people start copying what they wear, especially if it’s good.”
Anny Salama Murekatete, City Radio Presenter.
“A leader can’t influence my dress code. I am certain that I am smart enough and that is all I need. I’d much rather be myself than another person.”
Anny Mireille Rwirangira. RTUC Student.
“Every leader should be a role model in society. They should endeavor to be smart at all times because people look up to them.”
Ally Soudy, Isango Star Radio Presenter.
“It’s very possible for a leader to influence your dress code. Different events call for different attire. Leaders know how to dress appropriately for these events which is something the rest of society learns too.”
Philbert Mucyo, Remera Resident.
“Leaders don’t influence my dress code because I believe that dressing is an individual’s choice. It varies from colour, fashion, body shape and a lot of other things.”
Laetia Rwirangira, Kabeza Resident.
“Leaders do influence my dress code because in my mind, a good leader sets a good example in all aspects of life including fashion!”
Evelyn Umurerwa, News Anchor on RTV.
“A leader can influence your dress code mostly at work. However, outside the office is strictly up to an individual. It is important to wear what makes you feel comfortable.”
Irene Rwirangira, Remera Resident.
“To me, influence is a mutual thing. I can be influenced by a person I look up to but that doesn’t mean that a leader can’t look up to me as well! It’s a two way street!”
Dalia Nyirantagorama, Standard Décor, Kicukiro.
