– A colleague accused Momba MP Condester Sichwale of wearing tight trousers in parliament
– Nyang’wale MP Hussein Amar ignited the protest, noting that she was betraying her role as a role model
– The speaker asked the female MP to leave and return after changing her outfit
A Tanzanian MP was thrown out of parliament for wearing what some considered to be figure-hugging clothes.
Momba MP Condester Sichwale was kicked out by Speaker Job Ndugai on Tuesday, June 1, after a complaint voiced by another MP over her dressing.
Nyang’wale MP Hussein Amar, who is from the same party as Sichwale, spoke against her dressing just after a session of questions and answers, according to Global Publishers.
In a video shared extensively on social media, Amar could be heard speaking against his colleague, noting the parliament was a mirror of society; hence they needed to be a good example.
“Parliament is a mirror of society and Tanzania, and some of our sisters are wearing strange clothes and are legislators. What are they showing to the society?” Amar said amid cheers from the rest.
Speaker Ndugai asked that he names who he was referring to, and he did this by giving directions and the colour of her outfit, at no time mentioning her name.

Ndugai politely asked the female MP to leave and dress properly to be allowed back in parliament.
This shows how the fight for women’s rights is still far from successful, with many countries still stringent on how women dress in public.
See how internet users have reacted:
“Hypocrites, focus on the important things like governance.”
“The hypocrisy in this continent ehen. Angela Merkel will come to their country dressed like this and they will be falling over themselves to shake her hands.”
“Africans are Africa’s problem. Misplaced priorities.”
“Where is the tight trouser??? Abi na the wrong person you post!!”
“Africa is a whole different plane.”
“The whole of africa is just backward.”
“African leaders can never handle relevant issues, how is this dressing a problem now?”
Man criticises dressing of Nigerian gospel singer
Recently, a Nigerian evangelist, Victor Edet, accused newly ‘born-again’ gospel singer, Chidinma of holding on to the things of Satan.
In a Facebook post, the man of God stated that people often change their lives completely when they become born again.
However, in the case of Chidinma, she still dresses the same way she used to before she decided to go back to the church.
