Nominated senator Gloria Orwoba was trending yesterday after she showed up for the senate in 'blood-stained' pants on Tuesday.
She now says the hate that came after is giving her nightmares and is now threatening to deactivate her Twitter account.
According to a radio interview she had with HOT96 on Thursday morning, the politician said that she is unable to manage heartless and unbothered trolls on the platform.
"This thing of having a thick skin, no! We are human beings. In fact, I am contemplating leaving Twitter," she said.
"That whole cyber-bullying thing I will leave to Senator Karen Nyamu. She knows how to deal with it. It is intense and it gets to you. I won’t lie that I don’t care because it really gets to me."
This follows her 'period-awareness' dress code that had her kicked out of the Senate Chambers on Tuesday for 'inappropriate and indecent' dressing.
Senator Orwoba explained that she was raising awareness abut menstrual hygiene and ending period shaming among girls.
KOT immediately swung into action with encouragement and roasting in unequal measure, a larger section calling her out for using 'dramatic' tactics to pass a serious conversation.
Among those who've stood with the senator include Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja.
"Senator Gloria Orwoba. That was bold and provocative. To change some things you must make people uncomfortable and you did! I’ll do my part in Nairobi for our girls," Tweeted Gov. Sakaja.
