On Wednesday June 11, members of the Nairobi County assembly (MCA’s) had an unexpected paraphernalia in the House after a pack of condoms was discovered. The condoms distributed by the government were brought to the House’s attention by Karura ward rep Kamau Thuo who raised the alarm over a ‘suspicious box’ concealed below the seats on the majority side.
“I am worried by what is in that box Mr Speaker sir,” said Thuo as Speaker Alex ole Magelo, directed the sergeant-at-arms to check.
Members whispered and chuckled as Magelo was given the box. “Members, I know you mean well, but who brought condoms in the House?” he asked as laughter rocked the assembly.
Manoah Mboku, Health committee chairman, admitted taking the protective sheaths into the assembly, but said they were meant for male MCA’s’ toilets.
