Mumias East Member of Parliament Peter Salasya appears to be eating life with a big spoon.
On Tuesday, November 22, the first-time MP shared a video of enjoying warm service at a city barbershop.
“I am feeling good. Since I came here on the first day, I have never left this place. You know how to treat clients,” said Salasya in the video posted on Twitter.
Peter Salasya’s KSh 1 million offer
Salasya insisted that his hair is a brand saying that he can only shave it if he is offered KSh 1 million.
“My hair is my brand. Even the Clerk of the National Assembly can’t tell me anything about the hairstyle. So So So I will only shave it after giving KSh 1 million,” he explained.
He said that despite his hairstyle, he was busy serving the electorate at the grassroots.
“Despite this, we are working hard. Nairobi is all about drama, but we are doing a lot of work at the grassroots. I mean, home is serious work,” said the MP elected on a Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K).
Salasya’s unique hairstyle has caught the attention of many.
The 30-year-old politician spots a shaggy hairstyle, which many claims are untidy, but for him, it is his trademark.
Speaking to TUKO.co.ke about his signature hairstyle, Salasya says he cannot shave it.
“It’s my identity. I chose to be like that because it has been my signature hairdo ever since campaigns. Basically, to show my constituents I haven’t changed and am still the same person they voted in,” he said.
What it costs Peter Salasya to maintain his hair
Salasya revealed he would maintain the hairstyle, saying it is his identity. The young legislator disclosed that maintaining the hairstyle costs him KSh 3,000 per month.
“I got to the salon after every two weeks for it to be washed, dried and retouched, and I pay KSh 1,500 per session. Per month I visit the salon twice, meaning I spend KSh 3,000 per month,” he said.
In his own words, he added:
“Kitambo (Before I was elected) my hair used to be dirty because I couldn’t afford the KSh 1,500. I would only wash it with ordinary water and soap, but for now that I’m an MP, I need to keep it neat because I can afford cash to make it.”
