'This is Not a Soccer Pitch' - Senator Expelled from Sitting After Kingi Spots This in Video Camera

The Senate is holding a special sitting to debate on the new proposed laws concerning the recruitment panel of the commissioners of the electoral body ( Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission).

Kitui county Senator Enoch Wambua was held up and could not physically attend the special sitting. As a result, he was forced to attend the meeting through the Senate's online meeting platform.

Knowing that he was not well dressed according to the stipulations of the senate standing orders on code of dressing, the Senator had switched off the camera of his laptop so that he couldn't be seen by the speaker.

Unfortunately, a curious Speaker Amason Kingi demanded that the Senator switches on his camera so that it can be confirmed that he was wearing the appropriate attire. "Am afraid you may not continue without your camera on," said Speaker Kingi.

The Senator was therefore forced to switch on his camera to reveal his location and code of dressing. After revealing himself through the video camera, Speaker Kingi was quick to reprimand him over his dressing.

"Senator Enoch Wambua you are not properly dressed," said the speaker. "But am wearing an attire with colours of the national flag Mr Speaker," answered senator Wambua.

"It doesn't matter if it's the flag, am afraid you may not proceed," speaker Kingi fired back adding that the dressing was only appropriate for a football pitch. "You may be proceeding to a football pitch.
