The Kirinyaga County boss cautioned the MCAs by telling them that they are not above the law by ignoring court orders.

“If the Assembly does proceed in violation of the subsisting Court Orders, I shall seek such orders for contempt against the Speaker and all participating members as are available under the law,” said Waiguru.
