Nairobi County Assembly suspends sittings over surge in Covid-19 infections

By Betty Njeru | April 6th 2021

Nairobi County Assembly has adjourned its sittings indefinitely over a spike in Covid-19 infections.

County Assembly Speaker Benson Mutura (pictured) said there are over 40 reported cases of the coronavirus among members and staff.

It is reported that two MCAs are currently on oxygen.

Nairobi joins several other counties in suspending House business amid a growing third wave of Covid-19. 

On March 23, Elgeyo Marakwet County Government shut its offices to the public for an unspecified period following a surge in Covid-19 cases.

 “Due to the recent surge in Covid-19 spread, it is hereby notified to the general public that there shall be total lockdown of County offices effective March 22,2021,” County Secretary Paul Chemmuttut said.

Committee sittings at the Assembly were held virtually since the onset of Covid-19 last year save for critical ones.

Last week, Parliament adjourned its sittings as a containment measure against the Covid-19. 

It approved the motion to suspend its regular sessions till May 4, while the Senate will resume on May 11th in line with the President's directive to mitigate against the spread of the virus whose daily positivity rate is more than 26 percent.
