EACC summons Nairobi County Assembly majority leader over conduct of MCAs
SEE ALSO :Waititu grilled again over graft claimsBelow is a copy of the memo: Last week Speaker Beatrice Elachi was impeached after 103 members voted to pass a motion that was moved by Waithaka Ward Representative Antony Kiragu. The MCAs argued that Elachi had failed to meet the requirements of the chapter 6 of the constitution and that she is not qualified to lead the house. This was however a short-lived ouster since Ms Elachi went to Employment and Labour Relations Court and acquired an order preventing the House from ejecting her and interfering with her duties. On Tuesday, the members through the Senior Lawyer Prof Tom Ojienda requested the court to quash the order on the premise that Elachi did not swear an affidavit to back her petition.
