VIDEO: Aden Duale Lament About Female MPs Wearing Tight Clothes in Parliament
Majority leader in the National Assembly Aden Duale on Thursday called on the House to ban female politicians from wearing indecently during parliament sessions.
The Garissa Town Member of Parliament said that the House should be respected and Parliament’s decorum protected. He said this as he noted that some female politicians wore tight trousers to sittings.
Duale threatened to file a motion on how some women dressed in the house citing “lack of decorum.”
“Mr Speaker, in the chamber, there is a semi-order on decorum. Very soon Mr Speaker, in fact from this afternoon, I will be rising on a point of order. There are some women members of Parliament, their dress is not in line with this…Mr Speaker, today we will talk to them but tomorrow we will say, no, you don’t wear tight trouser….and you know ladies, this House has respect. Let us protect the decorum of the House,” said Duale.
He added: “if it goes on, I will file a motion, over the same. Some of the woman MPs wear very tight trousers and clothes.”

Duale’s sentiments come two months after Nyeri’s County Assembly kicked out nominated MCA Beth Nyawira over her dressing.
