There was trouble inside the Kisumu County Assembly on Tuesday after two groups of house members clashed over the fate of County Speaker Onyango Oloo.
Trouble began after the majority members voted to oust Oloo and replaced him with North Kisumu MCA Elisha Oraro on an acting capacity, resulting inna fight.
The trouble worsened when Deputy Speaker Roy Samo attempted to adjourn the house, in a clash that left a sergeant-at-arms injured as the others took off.
After being elected, the members broke into the Speaker's chambers to install him, only hours after Oloo was released from police custody over allegations of involvement in graft.
The changes were supported by Majority Leader Kenneth Okoth, after Oloo was named in the Sh4 billion Lake Basin Development Authority (LBDA) mall saga.
“The law requires that Oloo steps aside until such a time that he will be cleared by the courts,” he said, as groups of youths, in support of the changes, camped outside the assembly.
It later turned into running battles with the police, with details now indicating that the changes were realized after a Monday night meeting where the decision was reached at.
It has since been established that ODM officials in the county met the MCAs and directed them to kick out Oloo and replace him with Mr Oraro.
