Photos of Nominated Senator Gloria Orwoba making rounds on Tuesday, February 14 afternoon will remain etched in Kenyans' mind.
The senator walked to Parliament precincts dressed in a white suit that was stained with what appeared to be blood. Were they period stains?
In an exclusive interview with TV47 Digital, the youthful senator said that it was actual menstrual blood stain as she was on her periods.
"It is actually blood, I am cramping as we speak. The Senate social media admin put blood in quotes because they were not sure," she said, adding that she wanted to demonstrate the ordeal girls and women who can't afford sanitary pads go through when experiencing their menstrual cycle.
Orwoba's motion seeks to compel the government to provide free sanitary towels in a bid to end period poverty.
