He dismissed claims the premature adjournment was as a result of the simmering political tensions in the wake of a plot to impeach the Governor Okoth Obado.

The speaker stepped into the chambers at exactly a quarter to three signifying the start of the afternoon session.

And when he got to his feet it was to announce an abrupt adjournment of the sitting citing lack of adherence to COVID-19 containment measures.

A section of MCA’s burst into jubilation following the adjournment.

A state of affairs that would see the speaker defend his decision maintaining that COVID 19 meeting protocols must be adhered to before the assembly could resume its sitting on Wednesday morning.

The speaker also dismissed claims that the move was part of a wider scheme to scuttle the efforts by the orange democratic movement to impeach the embattled Migori Governor Okoth Obado.

He said impeachment of the governor is a process that will be laid bare once it begins.

He also said members of the assembly were not scared of executing the process with the sobriety it deserves.

The orange democratic movement chairman John Badi has called on the MCAs to impeach the Governor following accusations leveled against him by EACC of resource embezzlement in the county. 

The move has divided the county assembly right in the middle with a section of MCA’s reporting they had received death threats.
