Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi has told MCAs to stop personal attacks on Governor Mike Sonko.

This follows an ugly exchange of words between the governor and Kitisuru MCA Alvin Palapala last week where Mr Sonko, while addressing a crowd during the launch of a children’s park in Kangemi, accused Mr Palapala of abusing his mother after refusing to heed his request to buy him iron sheets.

Governor Sonko also alleged that the MCA is one of two ward representatives “sponsored” by his opponents to fight and blackmail him.

He asked Kitisuru Ward residents to collect signatures to recall the MCA for disrespecting and abusing him.

But Mr Palapala denied the accusations saying that he only asked the governor to buy his people, who were left homeless after a fire incident, iron sheets and blankets and not for his personal use.

RESPECT SONKO

But Speaker Elachi told the MCAs to restrain from dragging the name of Mr Sonko into personal issues, urging them to respect the governor at all times.
