Nyeri County Assembly Speaker John Kaguchia has heeded to calls by Karatina Ward MCA Watson Mburungo after he complained about women’s dressing.
Last Wednesday Mr Mburungo claimed that:
“Some of us cannot concentrate as we sit across our female MCAs. Kindly, advise us on the mode of dressing.”
“It is difficult for some of us to concentrate when our counterparts are in miniskirts”
The speaker ruled that the MCA was out of order but the next day, he decided to address the dress code problem to avoid tarnishing the assembly’s reputation. He said:
“This assembly is a House of honour and therefore all members must carry themselves in an honourable manner. The members’ dressing and mannerism during plenary should not bring the reputation of the assembly into disrepute.
The speaker’s rules that are in place stipulate that no person, even if otherwise qualified, shall be admitted to the speaker’s gallery unless he or she is, in the opinion of the Sergeant-at-Arms, properly dressed”
