How can I beat Sabina? Unless I'm a superwoman. I don't have her phone - Millie Odhiambo.

Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo has distanced herself from claims by her nominated counterpart Sabina Chege.

The former Murang'a woman representative had accused Odhiambo and Rosa Abuyu of Kisumu West of assaulting her during a melee that occurred in parliament.

On Thursday, June 8, the August House turned chaotic after Speaker Moses Wetang'ula shelved his ruling as regards the ejection of Sabina Chege from the minority's deputy whip.  

The speaker cited an existing court order that barred the removal of Sabina, irking a section of the Azimio La Umoja lawmakers who took it upon themselves to remove her.

Nominated MP Sabina Chege claims Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo attacked her.

The nominated MP got injured in the midst of the chaos; she also claimed she lost her phone.

Sabina pointed to the Suba North MP who has come to defend herself.

Millie explained that she could not fight Sabina who she argues is physically fit than her.

"Surely how can I beat such a hefty woman? She is three times my size!!!! Ama mimi ni Superman/woman. Hapo kwa simu, sina simu yako Jaber," said Millie.

The chaos informed Wetang'ula's decision to suspend the lawmakers who were at the centre of it all.

Besides Sabina and Millie, others suspended were Ruaraka's TJ Kajwang', Abuyu of Kisumu West, Fatuma Mnyanzi, Catherine Omanyo, and Joyce Kamene who will miss out two sittings.

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.
