Embattled Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi has returned to her office on Wednesday morning 13 months after her dramatic eviction.

Ms Elachi, who was escorted by Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party ward representatives and some Jubilee MCAs, her return will "bring back sanity" in the House.

She made her grand entrance some minutes before 8am amid tight security around the assembly's precincts.

The former nominated senator was later joined at her office by Homa Bay County Woman Representative Gladys Wanga.

Speaking to the media at her office, Ms Elachi said women at the assembly are tired of intimidation and it was time that changed.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

"I have been the speaker all along and I am now back to bring sanity at this assembly. It is time we say enough is enough," said Ms Elachi.

She went on to lash out at the Majority Leader Abdi Guyo over his utterances at the plenary on Tuesday, warning him that she would not just sit and watch him abuse and degrade her in public.
