I regret issuing the apology – Akorino model makes U-turn

Change of Heart

Model Pesh Kenya

Modest fashion Akorino model Peris Wanjiku alias Pesh regrets issuing an apology after her photos rocking a swimming costume landed her in trouble with a section of her fans.

On Wednesday, Pesh was under scrutiny from people who thought that her mode of dressing did not represent the values of a good ‘Akorino’ lady forcing her to issue an apology.

However, Pesh has made a U-turn on her earlier statement, saying she regrets issuing the apology as there is nothing wrong with the photos she had shared basing on where she was at that particular time.

Section of Church Members

She added that her apology was prompted by a section of Church Members who thought she was being immoral.

“I regret sending out that apology because I hadn’t done anything morally or legally wrong. They thought I was being indecent. Their subsequent attacks directed at me pushed me into issuing a public apology. I hadn’t thought through the whole issue at the time. It is not wrong for Akorino faithful to go swimming. It is also not against the Akorino practice to wear a swimsuit. There are a section of Akorino followers, who did not find offense in what I did” Pesh told Edaily.


In a statement seen by Pulse Live before Pesh later pulled down the post, she had written;

“I would like to apologize to anyone who might have been offended by any images posted on my social media pages. I believe that people can express themselves in very many ways and still have their morals intact. The images shared were innocent but the conversation that arose from them DON'T match with what I stand for as a young Akorino lady. Thanks for your support and I wish you all a lovely week.”
