Kisumu Speaker in new bid to save job
SEE ALSO :Race to replace Kisumu speaker kicks offThe notice has been filed by his advocate Mourice Ouma, with the former Speaker listing the Kisumu County Assembly Service Board and the Kisumu County Assembly as respondents. He has also listed acting Speaker Elisha Oraro as an interested party.
Reinstate himIn his previous suit, which was dismissed, Oloo had claimed his removal from office did not follow the right procedure and that he had not been given enough time to respond. Oloo was impeached last September 19, after being accused of abuse of office, unlawful suspension of MCAs and being linked to Lake Basin Mall scandal. The appeal is set to send the assembly back to the drawing board given that campaigns to replace him are in top gear. Two candidates have confirmed their intentions to take over the assembly leadership, as assembly Clerk Owen Ojuok prepares to declare the seat vacant. They are Ken Amondi, who narrowly lost to Oloo in the 2017 Speaker’s race, and Kisumu North Ward MCA Elisha Oraro, who has been acting in the absence of Oloo
