The ban would also apply for visitors into parliament, ” he said.
The speaker imposed the ban on Monday during a House session in Dodoma, Tanzania. Lawmakers are also prohibited from wearing short dresses and jeans to parliament, Mr. Nduga said.
Mr. Ndugai also added that he is making consultations with authorities before deciding on whether to discontinue MPs who use excessive make-ups from entering the House.
The announcement came shortly after the Deputy Minister for Health, Community Development, Gender, aged and Children, Faustine Ndugulile, instructed the House that ladies with false eyelashes and false fingernails face serious health risks that are expensive for the nation.
The minister instructed the House that least seven hundred ladies are admitted to hospital with complications linked towards the use of false eyelashes, false, and skin bleaching.
Back in Kenya, female leaders had also been embroiled in a similar debate on August 2 4, although on this occasion, the motion revolved around Murang’ a Woman Representative, Sabina Chege’s alleged inappropriate dressing.
A section of leaders, including majority leader, Aden Duale, advocated the speaker to ban any form of unofficial dressing in parliament for the sake of uniformity.
False eyelashes can permanently damage the hair follicles and cause allergic reactions which if not treated, can damage one’s eyes and can sometimes cause a lack in sight. While it is a fact that longer nails are attractive and fashionable, stories reveal that fake nails weaken the real nails and can aggravate a fungal infection.
