24 March 2016, 17:37

The assault came after she refused to approve funds allocated for a group of women travelling to Mombasa next week for their netball game.

Otieno denied the allegations and instead accused Manyala of trying to beat him in his office.

He said he had been contacted by members of the caucus who asked him to intervene as they were trying to secure funds for their game.

“I wrote her an SMS which stated 'Please communicate to [County Clerk Jacob] Ngwele because the ladies want assistance',” he said.

Research conducted in May 2002 by the International Labor Rights Fund (ILRF) determined that women workers in export-processing industries in Kenya, producing goods for the US market, suffer from violent sexual abuse by their employers and supervisors.

It showed that over 90 percent of all respondents had experienced, or observed, sexual abuse within their workplace.

Also that 95 percent of all women who had suffered workplace sexual abuse were afraid to report the problem, for fear of losing their jobs
