Tanzania Speaker of Parliament Job Ndugai banned some women Members of Parliament (MPs) from stepping into parliament. He said on September 10th that women with false eyelashes and false fingernails will not be allowed to enter the legislative house.
“With the powers vested in me by the Constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania, I now ban all MPs with false eyelashes and false fingernails from stepping into Parliament,” he said.
He said he was also consulting with experts before deciding on whether or not to ban those MPs who make use of make-ups excessively from entering the august House.
Mr Ndugai announced the ban shortly after the Deputy Minister for Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children, Dr Faustine Ndugulile, told the House that women with false eyelashes and false fingernails face several health complications that cost the country dearly.
