What does KK’s handkerchief represent and why does he carry it with him all the time.
While visiting President Sekou Toure in Guinea, he was asked this question. He explained that everytime he waves the hankie, he is saying: “PEACE BE UNTO YOU” and “MAY THE GOOD LORD BLESS YOU”.
Following this explanation, President Toure decided to carry a white hankie as well. It is certain if he did it religiously. KK actually carries two of them. One in his pocket which he uses for personal care and the other which he waves to people.
