National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has sent a strong warning to Members of Parliament who don’t adhere to house dressing code.
Muturi has threatened to lock out Members of Parliament, journalist and visitors from accessing Parliament if they don’t dress accordingly.

He noted that anyone visiting Parliament should wear a coat, collar, tie, long-sleeved shirt, long trousers, socks, and shoes or service uniform for men and decent formal/business wear for women.
Last year Murang’a Women Representative Sabina Chege was criticized by legislator Dan Mwanzo for putting on a sleeveless outfit. The Member of Parliament told the speaker it was out of order for his Murang’a counterpart to dress inappropriately.
It seems this time the speaker got it right after Kisumu West legislator Alwago Oluoch raised similar complains against Rarieda legislator Otiende Amollo.
The ODM lawmaker was dressed in a collarless shirt.
