Kenya MP arrested 'for slapping female colleague'

A Kenyan MP has been arrested for allegedly slapping a female colleague because she did not allocate money to his constituency.

Rashid Kassim is accused of slapping Fatuma Gedi, who sits on the budget committee, in the capital Nairobi.

A photo of Ms Gedi crying with blood in her mouth after the alleged assault has been shared widely on Twitter.

Female MPs subsequently walked out of parliament in protest after their male colleagues mocked them.

SEXISM LIKE CORRUPTION AND TRIBALISM UNDERMINES THE HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT OF A NATION.

It is precisely because of this national affliction why I have been calling for a national crusade against CORRUPTION, TRIBALISM AND SEXISM to reorder society by totally replacing the extractive and polarising political and economic institutions with enabling, innovative and inclusive political and economic institutions which are culturally synchronous. © Addai-Sebo
