Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Elachi impeached
103 MCAs voted in favor of her impeachment
During the process, 103 members voted in favor, 2 voted against and 2 abstained.
Elachi had earlier told off Members of the County Assembly urging them not to show off their frustration to Kenyans by discussing her in the Assembly.
Speaking in Malindi, Elachi was responding to MCAs who are mulling a bid to impeach her over what they deem as misconduct in the office.
“I know Members are frustrated, they have loans, they have not received their salaries but in that frustration, we cannot push it that way. We have issues of fuel to deal with and if we mix our welfare with what is happening in the country Kenyans will get even more confused,” said Elachi.
A number of MCAs allied to Jubilee party and NASA on Wednesday said that internal wrangles in the Assembly and the executive were undermining service delivery.
They were also unhappy with Elachi's move to invite the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) and Ethics Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to investigate corruption at the Assembly.
