A Kenyan MP, Fatuma Gedi was given a one-day suspended on Wednesday from Parliament because she distributed sweets to colleagues during a contentious debate.
Gedi had said the “sugar levels of members had gone down” after the day-long session.
She had been accused by colleague Ndindi Nyoro of distributing money as bribes in the floor of the house.
Nyoro who was asked to substantiate his bribery allegations, was suspended for two days after he failed to do so.
Gedi on her part, was suspended for a day for breaking house rules on conduct by distributing foodstuff in Parliament.
The MPs passed several amendments to the law on political parties ahead of this year’s general elections.
