Nakuru County Assembly plenary hall was on Wednesday decorated with beautiful African attire.
This was the first time the MCAs conducted their session in “Made in Kenya” attire after Nakuru County Speaker Joel Maina Kairu amended the rules.
Naivasha East MCA Stanley Karanja wore a customised Kikuyu traditional outfit decorated with beads and cowrie shells and a white hat made of fur.
“I thank Speaker Kairu for allowing MCAs to wear African attire. It’s good to have an identity which we have been missing in the House,” said Mr Karanja.
He added: “As prolific Kenyan author Ngugi Wa Thiong’o would rightly put it, we are now decolonising the mind by wearing African attire in the assembly.”
