In Summary
  • Jubilee MCAs want the ruling party to call for a caucus to find an amicable solution to the wrangles.

  • On Monday, the rival factions engaged in name-calling and scuffles.

Nairobi MCAs have called for the dissolution of the county government as fracas and supremacy battles continue to rock the assembly.

The ward reps, mostly from Jubilee, want the ruling party’s top leadership to call for a caucus to find an amicable solution to the wrangles.

Alternatively, they want President Uhuru Kenyatta to initiate the process of dissolving the county government.

The calls came following another round of chaos at the assembly Monday when MCAs allied to Speaker Beatrice Elachi tried to forcibly evict Majority Leader Abdi Guyo from his office.

GUYO REPLACED

The same MCAs had last week staged a coup, replacing Mr Guyo with Dandora III MCA Charles Thuo. They also replaced Majority Whip Waithera Chege with nominated MCA June Ndegwa.

Ziwani Kariokor MCA Millicent Mugadi was made deputy majority leader to replace Riruta MCA James Kiriba.

But the changes were opposed by the faction supporting Mr Guyo, who termed the process illegal.

On Monday, the rival factions engaged in name-calling and scuffles, which saw the door of the majority leader’s office broken down, teargas used and blows exchanged.

ROWDY MCAS

Calm was restored when Nairobi Central DCIO Samuel Kobina intervened.
