KISUMU Women representative Rose Nyamunga has furiously reacted to a global shocking story in which a married Kenyan MP attempted to rape his female counterpart during President Uhuru Kenyatta trip to Japan.
Speaking to press on phone Nyamunga condemned the ugly incident coming at a time numerous male MPs have been accused of meting sexual assaults against vulnerable women.
‘Women should be respected and I personally call upon relevant authorities to quickly swing into action in ensuring that the MP is punished for such inhuman act’’, she posed adding that should the MP go unpunished then it would be impossible for women to attend such trips with their male colleagues.
Turbo MP Elisha Busienei sent a barrage of messages to an internal platform Whatsup used by MPs, giving details of how her colleague attempted to solicit sex from her.
Joyce Lay, the woman representative of Taita Taveta County, has accused randy MP of insulting her after she allegedly declined his sexual advances at their hotel in Japan.
Ms Lay, who was among a group of MPs drawn from the National Assembly Committee on Defence and Foreign Relations who traveled to Japan with President Uhuru Kenyatta, said the MP called her "useless" after she turned down his advances.
The woman representative is accusing the hyena, a first term legislator from Rift Valley region, of manhandling her in her hotel room last Wednesday night.
"I have reported the matter to the committee and the committee chair, plus the leader of the delegation will handle it later," Lay told this writer.
SCOOPDESK is in possession of communication between the committee members in a WhatsApp chat group where chairman Ndung'u Gethenji (Tetu) is pleading with members not to use that platform to address Lay's complaints.
According to reliable sources the matter has resulted into a serious friction between the MP and his wife who is reportedly contemplating an immediate divorce pending consultation with her friends and family members.
