    According to the local news outlet Capital FM, the Kenyan parliament has commissioned an investigation into BBC claims of sexual assault on tea farms.

    Gladys Shollei, the deputy speaker, reportedly requested that it be finished in two weeks.

    The BBC discovered that at plantations run by Unilever and James Finlay, more than 70 women had been abused by their bosses.

    The two businesses assert that they have suspended the accused managers and are horrified by the accusations.

    It came after Beatrice Kemei, a female legislator for the county of Kericho, where the plantations are located, made a declaration to MPs.

    She expressed her dismay at the exposé and her desire for all women to be valued at work.

    “I want to caution any business owners operating in our county that they must respect our people’s human rights in addition to hiring our people.

    I implore all Kericho County people, both sexes, to feel free to come up and report any allegations of sexual harassment at work.
