Kenya’s Parliament Sacked A Female MP For Bringing Her Baby Into The Chamber And Social Media Reacted

Kenyan MP, Zuleika Hassan was ordered to leave Parliament for bringing her five-month-old baby into the chamber. According to Zuleika, she brought her baby to work because of a domestic emergency and that parliament didn’t have a creche. Female MPs had to walk out of Kenya’s parliament in solidarity with Zuleika.

According to the house rules, “strangers” are not allowed into the chamber, children included.

A number of male MPs described her actions as shameful.

People have been reacting to this on Twitter. While some think it was wrong for sacking her from parliament for carrying a baby, others argue that the action taken by Kenya’s parliament was right.

Here are some reactions:
