There was chaos at City Hall Monday morning after Members of the Nairobi County Assembly attempted to forcefully eject their Speaker Beatrice Elachi against a court order restraining the MCAs from doing so.
Elachi had resumed office amid tight security but the MCAs who have vowed not to work with her demanded that she exits the building.
They accuse her of alleged high handedness. Ms. Elachi, who was impeached last week, reported to work after the Labour court stopped her removal.
The ward reps, who were accompanied by their supporters, pushed their way and momentarily gained entry into Ms. Elachi’s office.
Majority Leader Abdi Guyo said that the office of the speaker is now vacant and there is no going back on their decision to impeach her.
Police had to lob tear gas canisters at the rowdy MCAs and their supporters but they stayed put.
