Chaos Rock City Hall As MCAs Storm To Eject Speaker Elachi From Office

Armed GSU officers were forced to intervene and repulse the rowdy group believed to be allied to Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

NAIROBI, Kenya, July 28, 2020 – Chaos once again rocked City Hall on Tuesday morning as a section of Nairobi Members of County Assembly attempted to storm Speaker Beatrice Elachi’s office to eject her.

Armed GSU officers were forced to intervene and repulse the rowdy group believed to be allied to Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

On Sunday, a group of Nairobi MCAs announced a fresh bid to impeach Elachi over allegations of abuse of office, corruption, poor leadership, victimisation of MCAs and assembly staff, impunity, disregard for the law and county orders, and militarisation of the assembly.

The county lawmakers had on Sunday collected 51 signatures way above the 42 required for an impeachment notice against the speaker to be filed in the county assembly.
