How KOT reacted to rejected Sexual Offences Bill
Kenyans on social media have expressed mixed reactions after Members of Parliament voted to reject the Sexual Offences Amendment Bill.
The Bill, sponsored by Busia Women Rep Florence Mutua, would have criminalized unwanted bodily contact in crowded public places.
While some Kenyans on Twitter chose to make fun of the bill’s failure by posting memes, others expressed their disappointment.

Haha. A female lecturer who happens to be a senior judicial officer told us the sexual offences act is an act based on emotion. Not logic
