Nyoro was on Wednesday evening ordered out of the house by the speaker after he failed to substantiate claims of bribery in the chamber and further refused to withdraw his remarks.

The MP has accused Wajir Woman Rep Fatuma Gedi of distributing money to influence voting over amendments to the Political Parties Bill 2021.

If a Member has sufficient reason to convince the Speaker that the Member is unable to substantiate the allegations instantly, the Speaker shall require that such Member substantiates the allegations not later than the next sitting day, failure to which the Member shall be deemed to be disorderly within the meaning of Standing Order 107 (Disorderly conduct) unless the Member withdraws the allegations and gives a suitable apology if the Speaker so requires.”
