Morning proceedings of the Kenya’s parliament on Wednesday were temporarily brought to a standstill after a legislator entered the chambers with her five-month-old baby.
Christopher Omulele, who was serving as the speaker, ordered Kwale Woman Representative Zuleika Hassan to withdraw from the chamber saying it is not the right place to take care of her child.
A section of male MPs and the women lawmakers, however, supported Ms Hassan urging her to stay put causing a standstill within the chambers.
The speaker called the sergeant-at-arms to evict Ms Hassan who by then was being shielded by her female counterparts.
“As much as she has a right to take care of her child, this not the right place, I therefore direct that you immediately withdraw from the chambers,” ordered Mr Omulele.
