- Chege was allegedly hit with a bottle during the chaos that erupted following a ruling on her removal as the deputy minority whip.
- Speaker Moses Wetang'ula retained her as the whip citing court order suspending her removal.
Nominated MP Sabina Chege was on Thursday injured following a commotion in Parliament.
Chege was allegedly hit with a bottle during the chaos that erupted following a ruling on her removal as the deputy minority whip.
Speaker Moses Wetang'ula retained her as the whip citing a court order which suspended the minority Azimio's decision to axe her from the post.
The ruling led to chaos characterised by MPs menacing at each other and ignoring calls for order.
It forced Wetang'ula to order for a 15-minute recess after which he suspended seven MPs from sittings, including Chege.
"The following members having flouted the Standing Orders of the House by menacing each other, shouting at the chair and making all manner of unprintable utterances, I will invoke the provisions of Standing Order 107 (a)," Wetang'ula said.
They include Millie Odhiambo (Suba North), Rozaah Buyu (Kisumu West), TJ Kajwang (Ruaraka) and Chege who were suspended for two weeks while Malindi MP Fatuma Mnyazi and Catherine Omanyo (Busia) will both serve a five-day suspension.
Machakos Women Representative Joyce Kamene was suspended for two sittings.
