In an incident that reeks of sexism, a female Member of Parliament (MP) in Tanzania was removed from the National Assembly because of her trousers that were deemed ‘tight’.

According to BBC, Condester Sichwale, a minister for the ruling CCM party was removed from the Assembly on Tuesday, June 1 after Hussein Amar a male colleague, had a problem with her clothes.

Hussein Amar, pointing at Condester Sichwale, “Mr. Speaker, an example there is my sister seated on my right with a yellow shirt. Look at the trousers she has worn, Mr. Speaker.”

The Speaker then ordered the MP, Condester Sichwale, to leave and was told to “go dress up well, and then join us back later.”

Hussein Amar asserted that Parliament was a reflection of society, citing a portion of Parliament’s rules forbidding female legislators from wearing tight jeans.

It was also reported that the chamber orderlies had been asked by Speaker Ndugai to deny entry to anyone who was “inappropriately dressed,”.

Another tweet claimed that the Tanzania government shares detailed dress code guidelines for all public servants.
