PHOTOS: Drama as Akothee enters Parliament in mini-skirt
Controversial Kenyan musician Esther Akoth, popularly known as Akothee, caused drama at Parliament buildings on Wednesday afternoon after trying to enter the premises dressed in a mini-skirt.
It is against parliamentary rules for MPs or guests to wear within parliament what is considered as indecent attire.
The musician was scheduled to meet David Sankok, the nominated MP representing persons with disabilities. The agenda of their meeting remains unclear.
The Sergeant at Arms were forced to stop Akothee from accessing Sankok’s office in her mini-skirt.
The artiste, however, resisted the Parliament officers’ attempt of blocking her, leading to a shouting match and high drama.
The Sergeant at Arms, however, stood their ground and gave the musician a leso to tie around her waist, but she threw it down in anger.
Sensing that she wasn’t going to win the battle, Akothee agreed to cover herself using the leso, and was later spotted having lunch with MPs at the Parliament cafeteria.
