Nominated MP Sabina Chge has accused a section of Azimio MPs who attacked her in Parliament on Tuesday to return her stolen phone.

Speaking on Friday at a coffee summit in Meru, Sabina urged Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, who was present at the function, to weigh in on the matter.

The Nominated MP said she has been out of service since the phone was snatched from her.

"Apart from beating me, they proceeded to steal my phone. It is an iPhone 14, and your Excellency our DP Rigathi Gachagua, I request for your intervention and support so that I can recover the phone. Those who stole the phone, please hand it back to me," Sabina said. 

A commotion ensued on Thursday after Azimio MPs protested the failure of Speaker Wetang'ula Moses to ratify the removal fo Chege from office.

The commotion left Chege injured after she was allegedly hit with a bottle during the chaos.

Wetang'ula retained her as the whip citing a court order which suspended the minority Azimio's decision to axe her from the post.

MPs menaced each other and ignored calls for order from Wetangula.

The speaker was forced to order 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.

The suspended members 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.
