MPs attempted to undress me in Parliament, claims Millie

Mbita legislator Millie Odhiambo has sensationally claimed that three Members of Parliament attempted to undress her on Thursday inside the chambers, as details of the disgraceful session continue to emerge.

The feisty MP did not name the culprits, but outlined the events in an off-the-chest post on her Facebook page.

“I was boxed in the eye by Moses Kuria as one permanent drunk pulled my panty and another two pulled up my dress,” she wrote.

This, she says, did not cow her. “…we pride as a people in nakedness na wamejua. When they tried to undress me I completed the process for them. I am fearfully and wonderfully made and have no embarrassment over my body. I cannot and will not be intimidated using my sexuality,” she said.

The ODM MP did not elaborate on what she meant by “completing the process for them”.

Ironically, the shameful events came on the day MPs debated and passed the contentious Security Laws Bill which among other things criminizes stripping of women.

Once assented to by President Uhuru Kenyatta, anybody convicted under the stripping offence will be liable to a 10 year in jail.

The law was triggered by a series of incidences where a number of Kenyan women have been undressed and sexually molested for alleged indicent dressing.
