SUMMARY

A senior official of one of the leading political parties is on the spot over wrangles in the Nairobi County Assembly

Reason? The man is said to be pushing interests of his relative who was nominated to the House

A senior official of one of the leading political parties is on the spot over wrangles in the Nairobi County Assembly.

Reason? The man is said to be pushing interests of his relative who was nominated to the House.

The Grapevine has gathered that the female MCA was being favoured in the assembly committee membership, with reports indicating she is a member of six committees.

The fight to be in committees is fueled by the sitting allowances and other perks offered.

The inclusion of the MCA in the multiple committees has caused protests among Nairobi MCAs, some of whom have been relegated to less lucrative teams to create space for the top official’s kin.

Can the man recuse himself from the assembly’s wrangles now that he has personal interests in the matter?
