Yennie commented on The Sartorial Senior

Yes, Iris is definitely an inspiration. She exemplifies what we can look forward to in older age, namely that your sense of style grows over time and that there is always time for experimentation!

What previous interactions have you had with the local government in Kibera on this issue?
