Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa gave the example of a woman who has been making the lawmakers restless by sending them her nude photos.

“This matter is serious, as it has broken many families and must be brought to an end,” said Mr Wamalwa.

His sentiments were echoed by Opposition MP Junet Mohamed who said that male MPs faced cyber-bullying even more than their female counterparts.

"We have been bullied, seduced and the careers of some politicians have ended due to cyber-bullying.”

Lawmaker Kaptuya Cheboiwo on her part however observed that it was not only the male MPs who faced harassment but even the women.

“Male MPs think they are the only ones being seduced. We are also being seduced left, right and centre,” she said.

The MPs say they will summon the police chief and officials from mobile phone providers to query them on the issue.
