Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga has advised men to make love to women, instead of assaulting them.
Her observation came after Garissa women representative Fatma Gedi was attacked by Rashid Kassim who is Member of Parliament for Wajir East.
Omanga posted “Women like many other citizens ought to be valued and not subjected to the grievous acts that take away our rights”
Adding that “I highly condemn the incident where Fatma Gedi was attacked by her counterpart Hon. Rashid Kassim in parliament buildings. What a shame”.
Gedi was left with a bloody mouth after the morning incident in Parliament precincts in a reportedly unprovoked attack by Kassim.
Witnesses said Kassim accused Gedi – who sits in the Budget Committee – of failing to allocate money for his constituency. A brief argument ensued resulting in Kassim punching Gedi.
“I was just walking with my colleague when he accosted me and started calling me stupid and within minutes he punched me on the cheek,” Gedi said.
