This came days after two members; Wambui Mwangi and Simon Wamwea were forcefully ejected from the chambers forcing them to get a court order to be allowed to access the assembly.

Upon their arrival, a fight ensued destroying property of unknown value.

During the melee, the MCAs hurled chairs and tables at each other.


The two members were early this month ousted from the county assembly public service board.

The Assembly through a resolution revoked the appointment of MCA Simon Wamwea (Ngararia ward) and MCA Elizabeth Wambui (Kimorori/Wempa ward) from the board after serious concerns were raised pertaining to their competency to serve on the board.

The motion for removal of Wamwea and Wambui by impeachment was tabled by Muguru ward MCA Moses Muchiri after the MCAs accused the two members of acting out of personal interest and were deemed not fit to be part of the board.

Muchiri said the county assembly resolved to remove the two members from office pursuant to Section 12(3) (c) of the County Governments Act 2012 on the provisions, procedures and grounds which County Assembly Service Board members may be removed.

“This Assembly through the resolution revokes the appointment of MCA Simon Wamwea and MCA Elizabeth Wambui from Murang’a County Assembly Service Board by way of impeachment,” said Muchiri.

Muchiri said that the MCAs wanted the removal of the two members by way of impeachment on grounds of vote of no confidence and misrepresentation.

“29 out of 47 elected MCAs have already appended their signatures of the removal of MCA Simon Wamwea and MCA Elizabeth Wambui from office,” he said.

Other grounds that warranted the two members’ removal from office were financial mismanagement and incompetence in their line of duty.
