A number of former MCAs who served in Nyamira first assembly on Monday stormed in the regional assembly premises to demand for their gratuity amounting to Sh33 million.

Led by former Kemera MCA James Mating'a, the accused the county assembly of sabotaging their 'constitutional' rights without formal communication.

"We are urging the county assembly of Nyamira to ensure we are paid our money since it was deducted from our salaries," he said.

The former assembly had passed the bill for retirement which recommended that each MCA walks home with Sh1 million at the expiry of the assembly.

To expedite the process, he said, the former leaders would camp within the premises until they are cleared by authorities.

"We shall camp here until we find a solution. They are playing tricks with what is rightfully ours and that is unacceptable," he said.

Speaker Moffat Teya has remained mum over the impasse as the 33 Ex-MCAs, with some still in office, demanding to be paid.
