Wednesday, September 18, 2019- Controversial Kenyan singer turned philanthropist, Esther Akoth alias Akothee caused a stir in Parliament Buildings in Nairobi on Wednesday, September 17, when she went to the National Assembly premises dressed inappropriately.
The mother of five and self-declared president of single mothers was scheduled to meet David Sankok, the nominated MP representing persons with disabilities.
The singer was in parliament to invite MPs to the official launch of her foundation.
Akothee, who was dressed in a short green skirt that she had matched with body-hugging blazer was barred from accessing the assembly by parliamentary orderlies.
This seemed to irk the flamboyant singer who caused a scene but her tantrums proved futile.
In August 2018, the National Assembly Deputy Speaker, Moses Cheboi, explained what constitutes “appropriate dressing” to the House after Murang’a Woman Rep Sabina Chege wore a short-sleeved V-neck blouse that exposed too much skin and causing stir in the chambers.
