Three senior managers from Limuru-based BrownCheese Company Limited were arrested on Thursday in connection with an incident in which female employees were allegedly forced to undress at work.

In the shocking incident, female employees are said to have been forced to strip naked by a manager who wanted to know who had disposed of a sanitary towel in the wrong bin.

Those arrested included the plant's Quality Assurance Manager, Human Resource Manager, and HR assistant. They will appear in court on Friday.

In the disturbing Tuesday incident, several female employees were forced to strip naked after a used sanitary towel was found in the wrong disposal bin.

According to investigations by the Gender office at the Tigoni police station, this was not the first time a senior manager forced female workers to strip naked.

According to Senator Gloria Orwoba who first went public with the incident, she received a distress call about the incident on Monday night.

"I got a report about an incident at Brown Cheese Company in Limuru that the Quality Assurance Manager had found a sanitary towel put in the wrong bin," Orwoba posted on her social media platforms.

"The manager allegedly got all the women from the team and told them to undress so that she could check who was on her periods so that they could punish them for putting the towel in that bin," 

She added that despite her intervention, the matter had escalated.

"It is unfortunate that the matter at Brownscheese Company in Limuru has escalated despite this morning's intervention through my office," she added. 

"All institutions should purpose to implement the MHM Policy in Kenya for the good of all stakeholders,"
