Nominated Senator Karen Nyamu was yesterday kicked out of the Senate proceedings for being inappropriately dressed.
After sharing her photo on Facebook, a follower identified as Joy Murungi asked her to fix her relationship with her fellow politicians.
According to the follower, Karen's haters are the reasons she was kicked out.
"Let this be a reminder that you have a relationship to fix with your fellows. People don't forget, especially your colleagues, they may bare with you, but they don't like you. Cooperation is better than confrontation, careful or you'll soon be a shadow in politics," the fan wrote.
In a quick rejoinder, Karen said rules applies to everyone admitting she was indecently dressed according to the rules of the house.
"Are you saying someone else would have been allowed to stay in a sleeveless top because colleagues love them hahaha rules are rules they apply to all," Karen said.
Nyamu had accessed the chambers in a sleeveless top, exposing her arms which is against the House rules.
The matter was petitioned by Migori Senator Eddy Oketch.
"I invite your attention to guide the House whether Senator Karen Nyamu is properly dressed," Oketch called the Speaker's attention.
He urged the Majority side to respect the rules of the House and Kenyans at large.
Speaker Amason Kingi ruled that the House rules had been violated, and ordered Nyamu to leave the chambers.
"Senator Nyamu, I'm going to read the Speaker's Rule No for clarity. Senators are required not to enter the chamber, lounge or dining room without being properly dressed," he said.
"This means a male Senator will be dressed in a coat, collar, tie, long trousers, socks and shoes or service uniform, religious attire or such other decent dressing as may be approved by the speaker from time to time. An equivalent standard shall apply in respect of women senators who may also wear kitenges or such other African attire."
In reference to the rule, Kingi added, "Senator Nyamu, I'm afraid you do not fit the bill and I'm going to ask you to leave the chambers, get properly dressed and come back to the chambers."
