Kenya MP fights for right to wear bling

Thursday, March 3, 2011

A Kenyan lawmaker thrown out of parliament for wearing ear studs and sunglasses says he will fight to change the dress regulations.

"I represent the youths who elected me to parliament," Gidion Mbuvi, 35, told the BBC.

"This is our generation. It is our time," said the MP who drives a Hummer car, like many US rap stars. He says MPs should be allowed to wear "extras" such as sunglasses and earrings, as long as they wear suits.

He was thrown out of parliament on Tuesday after other MPs decided that the way he dressed offended the dignity of the assembly. Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim said the house had never before been entered by a male lawmaker wearing earrings.
