MP suspended for distributing sweets in parliament

A Kenyan MP was on Wednesday suspended from parliament for one day for distributing sweets to colleagues during a contentious debate.

Fatuma Gedi said the “sugar levels of members had gone down” after the day-long session.

She had been accused by colleague Ndindi Nyoro of distributing money as bribes in the floor of the house.

Mr Nyoro was asked to substantiate his bribery allegations and was suspended for two days after he failed to do so.

Ms Gedi was suspended for a day for breaking house rules on conduct by distributing foodstuff in parliament.

The MPs passed several amendments to the law on political parties ahead of this year’s general elections.

Here is an excerpt of the moment the MPs made the bribery accusations:
