A black body contour dress that ends just on the knee, complimented by see-through fabric at her bosom and paired with a flower patterned sleeveless kimono is what a nominated Member of County Assembly (MCA) was wearing when she was kicked out of the assembly by the speaker.
The lady identified as Beth Nyawira, opted to show up to work dressed in sleeveless clothes and open maasai slippers, not knowing how her day on Tuesday, October 17, was going to end up.
According to reports, Nyawira was walked out of a committee meeting where the nominee for Youth, Sports and Social Services, Sheila Githaiga, was appearing for vetting.

Just as she rose to object Githaiga's nomination, the speaker reprimanded her for her dressing after Kirimukuyu MCA, Anthony Ndagita, took issue with her dressing.
According to Nairobi News, Speaker John Kaguchia found that Nyawira had breached house rules and ordered that a sergeant at arms escort her out of the chamber.

The matter was first raised by Karatina ward MCA, Watson Mburungo, who said the women's dressing tends to distract their male counterparts.
The speaker ruled that no one would be allowed into the speaker's gallery if the sergeant at arms' opinion was that they are not properly dressed.
