The comeback of embattled Nairobi County Assembly Speaker, Beatrice Elachi at the City Hall has been met with chaos from Nairobi ward representatives.
A section of MCAs affiliated to Jubilee Party stormed the City Hall causing chaos in protest of Elachi's return.
The MCAs claimed that Elachi is biased as she is inclined towards the ODM side.
The drama that ensued prompted the police to move in. They had to hurl teargas at the clashing MCAs to separate them.
Immediately after stepping into her office, Elachi held a press conference where she addressed a number of issues.
She called for respect from MCAs affiliated to Jubilee Party. She also vowed to cut-down all illegal foreign trips made by MCAs.
“In Nairobi County, we have a good relationship with members but the leadership intimidates and manipulates members and the governor. This manipulation, they did it to Kidero…the cartels are all over. I want to thank the members for yesterday. You can’t use the floor of the House to insult women. When you abuse the prime minister, you are abusing Mama Ida,” said Elachi.
Elachi was forcefully removed from office on September 10, 2018.
However, in May 2019, Justice Maureen Onyango of the Employment and Labour Relations Court reinstated her citing a lot of flaws in her impeachment process.
