Wambui: Women partly to blame for sexual harassment
30 March 2015, 12:04
Othaya - Cases of women being sexually harassed and raped have increased due to change of lifestyle, Othaya MP Mary Wambui has said.
She said women who claim they were sexually harassed were to blame, since they also play part in one way or another.
“Ladies should observe their dressing codes and movements to avoid being sexually harassed. However, men should respect women and stick to their spouses,” advised Wambui.
Wambui said women MPs were being harassed by their male colleagues because of how they interact.
She alleged that some women leaders were engaging in late night entertainment with men who are not their husbands.
“Some women behaviors will attract men and drive them to weird actions. We have to respect ourselves as well,” she said.

The MP was speaking over the weekend at Iriani Girls Secondary School in Othaya, during a funds drive to buy a school bus.
Speaking at the same function, Nyeri County MP Priscilah Nyokabi said women leaders are endangered following sexual cases involving MPs.
“Girls should be brought up to be women of substance and value. Women must ensure they remain with their personal values and respect,” said Nyokabi.
