The National Assembly, which is arm of the government other than the Judiciary and the Executive has time and again witnessed drama by honorable members. This is all thanks to the parliamentary immunity which indicates that an MP cannot be arrested in Parliament or for anything he does during parliamentary seatings
A good example is Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo who has in the National Assembly for two terms. She is not just an ordinary ODM legislator but also, she ardent ally of Raila Odinga. At one point, Millie Odhiambo did the unexpected in Parliament all with a bid to adjourn the seating since they were very few ODM members that day unlike those from the ruling party.
Led by Gatundu MP Moses Kuria, legislators from the ruling party wanted to pass the Security Laws Bill which the ODM MPs were against. Sensing that the speaker could not here anything from her, Millie Odhiambo allegedly removed her inner wear in the middle of the tense Parliament and hit the speaker with it despite attempts by Moses Kuria to stop her.
By this, the speaker did not think twice but adjourned the seat in accordance to the wishes of Millie Odhiambo
