The leadership crisis at the Nyandarua County Assembly deepened on Friday after the acting clerk Elizabeth Muthui swore in newly elected Rurii Ward Representative, Muraya Githaiga.

The ceremony was conducted in a special sitting convened by Deputy Speaker Zakary Njeru.

The event came a few days after Speaker Ndegwa Wahome was barred from accessing the assembly, following his reinstatement by Justice Joel Ngugi a week ago.

In his maiden speech, Muraya said one of his priorities is the rehabilitation of roads.
