Members of the Kisumu County Assembly will on Tuesday discuss the fate of their embattled Speaker Onyango Oloo's who is currently in police custody over corruption allegations.
Oloo was arrested on Saturday over allegations of involvement in the Sh4 billion scandal surrounding the construction of Kisumu's Lake Basin Development Authority (LBDA) mall.
Consequently, a session to discuss his fate is topping the list of issues to be deliberated as the house comes back from its long recess.
This comes amid fears among some MCAs that should he resign, then the house will go back to the fights it was involved in before he came to power after the 2017 polls.
However, Minority Leader Philemon Juma says that the arrest has no effect on the house operations, remarks that were echoed by his majority counterpart Kenneth Onyango.
“We have a deputy speaker as well as members of the speaker’s panel and we believe they will continue with the roles required of the speaker adequately,” said Juma on Sunday.
County Communication Director Alloyce Ager expressed hope that operations will continue running smoothly durinfnthe time the speaker will be away.
"The speaker does not dictate the things happening at the assembly and is only like a referee. The MCAs will do what they need to do," said Ager.
Oloo has during his tenure made life quiet hard for the executive, includinf leading the house in rejecting governor Anyang Nyongo's Sh10 billion budget for ignoring MCAs' demands.
He has also pushed for the construction of the Speaker's house.
