Wajir woman representative Fatuma Gedi was denied entry into a local airline at the Wilson Airport under unclear circumstances.
According to The Standard the heavily pregnant legislator had paid for the tickets and had gone through the necessary security checks but Fly Sax officials failed to issue her with a boarding pass.
The same was not also issued to nominated senator, Falhada Iman.
Surprisingly the entourage accompanying the two leaders were issued with their boarding passes. Officials at the Fly Sax airline admitted the confrontation that took place but said that all information with regards to the incident could only be obtained on Monday.
Fatuma Gedi said that this was not the first time to use the airline and wondered why she would be denied entry despite paying for her ticket.
The two leaders were headed to Wajir to celebrate the international women’s day.
