Did Sabina Chege just provoke Honorouble Duale’s emotions?
Well the Murang’a women representative Sabina Chege is at it again.This time he brought the August house into a stand off after she comment about circumcision a topic that was apparently not taken too lightly by the by the leader of Majority in the National Assembly Aden Duale.
Ms. Chege, who happens to be the Chair of the House committee on health, was tabling guidelines on the amounts that should be charged on male circumcision conducted in hospitals.
In her statement she said, “Madam speaker, I want to go again on Christmas and around this time is the time for circumcision. he guidelines are clear that for adult male circumcision, the minimum is Sh20,000 while the maximum is Sh40,000.”
Her comment, did not bring joy to Hon.Duale’s face ,according him it was not her mandate to bring the topic of circumcision in the house or even give the prices of circumcision.
In addition Duale said, “Madam speaker, you have heard the honorable member giving the price of circumcision in Kenya. That is a very private matter and its only some people like me who can give the price. Is Honorable Sabina in order to mislead this house that she is an expert on male circumcision.”
His sentiment were echoed by Emuhaya MP Omboko Milemba who said that such issues should not be discussed in public.
The matter was however settled after Sabina explained that she was only making reference to the professional guidelines for medical and dental practioners in Kenya.
“Madam speaker, I know the matter is private especially for communities that go to the river but I am referring to those who go to hospitals and are guided by these guidelines,” Chege said
Well seems like Sabina Chege is not a friend of her male colleagues at the August house.This is not the first time they are arguing about her.
Just a few weeks ago, there was a uproar in parliament after her male collegues claimed that Sabina Chege was dressed inappropriately a dress code that was not support to be worn in parlianment
