The Police was forced to fire teargas at Members of the Nairobi County Assembly (MCAs) to disperse them after they stormed the office of County Speaker Beatrice Elachi to forcefully evict her following her impeachment last week.
The drama at City Hall started after the MCAs stormed Elachi’s office and broke the office doors to evict her.
Last week the MCAs unanimously voted to kick out Nairobi Speaker Beatrice Elachi on grounds of abuse of office and gross misconduct. However, Ms Elachi’s lawyer rushed to the Labour Court the same evening and obtained temporary orders suspending her impeachment.
MCAs GIVE SONKO ULTIMATUM TO SHIFT OPERATIONS FROM MUA HOME
The MCA’s have also given Governor Mike Sonko 14 days to return to his county office.
The MCA’s Majority leader Abdi Guyo said it is ironical for Sonko be operating from another county.
“We have resolved that we want Governor Sonko back at his City Hall office. City Hall is gazetted as the Nairobi County headquarters and we cannot have a governor running our affairs from another county,” Guyo said.
Sonko had in May moved operations to his home in Mua Hills sighting “security reasons” after his bodyguards were reduced to four.
