Senate Changes Dress Code

In an effort to better engage with the electorate, Senate Speaker Amason Kingi has relaxed dress code requirements for members during the house’s weeklong visit to Turkana County.Since the current administration assumed office in 2022, the Senate has not met outside of Nairobi until the current session, which is taking place in Turkana.

To help the lawmakers fit in with the new environment, which is known for being very hot and dry, Kingi issued a decree that granted senators free rein to don anything unusual from their customary formal suits.Senators are not required to wear formal suits at all times. Please go ahead and put on the formal outfits if you feel comfortable doing so,” Kingi said.

Male senators are not required to wear ties, however Kingi did say that they must wear official shirts for this week’s seatings only.The senators were instructed to keep a professional appearance throughout the meetings.

“A comfortable workplace is one of a worker’s or employee’s fundamental rights so that you can be able to get the best out of that particular employee,” Kingi continued.As a result, senators decided to dress traditionally and religiously for the meeting by donning vitenges, maasai clothing, and accessories that matched what people in the Northern County generally wore.

According to the Speaker’s Rules (Revised) 2017, members must always be adequately attired, which for men means suits, and for women it means full-sleeved suits, whether they are in the chamber, lounge, or dining room.

One of the regulations specifies, instructively, that a male member shall be attired in a coat, collar, tie, long pants, socks, and shoes, or in a service uniform, religious garb, or such other suitable wear as may from time to time be allowed by the Speaker.Female counterparts are also not allowed to wear African attire such as kitenge.
