You are using a GTK+3 application (Emacs) in a KDE environment. It is
likely that your theme supports Qt but not GTK+3.

Do you also suffer from the same problem when using other GTK+3
applications (e.g. synaptic or gucharmap)? If so, find a theme that
supports both Qt and GTK+3, or find a GTK+3 theme that most resembles
your chosen Qt theme.

Nothing that you do in Emacs (apart from editing GTK+3 configuration
files) will affect the appearance of menus, since they are drawn by
the toolkit, not Emacs.
