Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi’s return to office following her impeachment last week had mixed reactions today as Members of the Assembly stormed her office insisting that she vacates.
A vigorous exchange ensued between Elachi and a section of county lawmakers forcing top House leadership to call for a close-door meeting during which the embattled Speaker was prevailed upon to leave the precincts of the Assembly.
Nairobi County Assembly Minority Whip Peter Imwatok told the press Elachi had accepted the proposal but her departure from the office could not be independently verified.
In an earlier interview, the Nairobi County Assembly Speaker who has secured orders staying her removal from office said she was being targeted as a result of a firm stance she had taken in ongoing effort to fight graft at City Hall.
She wondered why the county lawmakers had changed tune on an ongoing corruption case against County Assembly Clerk Jacob Ngwele
