Kenya: MP Suspended For Distributing Sweets In Parliament
A Kenyan MP was on Wednesday suspended from the Parliament for one day for distributing some sweets to colleagues during a contentious debate. Fatuma Gedi said the sugar levels of members had gone down after the day-long session. She had also been accused by a colleague Ndindi Nyoro of distributing money as bribes
in the floor of the house. Mr Nyoro was then asked to substantiate his bribery allegations and was suspended for two days after he failed to do so. Ms Gedi was then suspended for a day for also breaking house rules on conduct by distributing foodstuff in the parliament. The MPs passed several amendments to the law on political parties ahead of this year’s general elections.
