Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo has finally broken her silence and spilt beans on what transpired on December 30, 2016, when she was allegedly undressed in parliament after making demeaning remarks against President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In an interview with the Standard, the lawmaker revealed that she asked the MPs who were mishandling her to tell her what they had never seen before that led them to be so inhuman to undress her for speaking her mind.

The firebrand lawmaker said that she had nothing to fear during the incident and she could not sit back and watch women being demeaned.

Odhiambo, who has been very vocal on matters of national interest, also said that she chose to pull up her skirt as a way of distracting her counterparts. 

She then went ahead to question them over their acts.

 “So I pulled it up for them and asked them what it was that I had that they had not seen,” she said. 

The lawmaker also said that she has decided to be silent because of the handshake. 

She further said that the unity shown by President Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Amolo Odinga has impressed her.

She, however, warned that she will not remain silent if anyone attacks her party leaders.

 Before the handshake, Millie Odhiambo was always attacking President Kenyatta over his leadership style.
