Sabina Chege said the face-off she had with some Azimio MPs made her lose her phone.

Nominated MP Sabina Chege now claims she lost her sleek phone during the melee that ensued in parliament last week. 

The lawmaker found herself in the midst of a fight after Speaker Moses Wetang'ula declined to ratify Azimio La Umoja's prayer to strip her of the minority's deputy whip roles.

Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo and her Kisumu West counterpart Rosa Abuyu would then move to where Sabina was to eject her.

The whole shebang degenerated into a fight that left the former Murang'a county woman representative sustaining injuries.

Sabina revealed that despite being injured, she also lost her iPhone 14.

Speaking in Meru on Friday, the lawmaker called on Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to intervene and help her get her gadget back.

Nominated MP Sabina Chege.

"Please tell Millie Odhiambo and Rosa Abuyu to bring back my iPhone 14," she said. 

The speaker ordered the ejection of the two lawmakers from the chambers of the house following the conduct.

He sought the intervention of the sergeant at arms after the duo defied the orders.

"Sergeant at arms, ensure the two MPs are taken outside the Parliament. Honourable Buyu and Millie Odhiambo, please leave the House. I want to see the two MPs outside," Wetang'ula ordered.

Wetang'ula while declining to rule on Sabina's ejection cited a court order that barred her removal from the post.

Sabina shifted her allegiance to the Kenya Kwanza faction despite being sponsored to the National Assembly by the Jubilee Party, a member party of the Azimio La Umoja Coalition Party.

The Raila Odinga-led side wants the deputy whip post Sabina holds to be given to Embakasi West MP Mark Mwenje of the Jubilee Party.
