Another dramatic violence occurred in Homa Bay County assembly after MCAs prevented a court process server from serving the county assembly clerk with a court order.
The court process server identified as Elivis Ochieng’ from Kisumu High Court went to the assembly yesterday to serve the Clerk -Daniel Kaudo over alleged contempt of Court.
The contempt order accused Mr. Kaudo of swearing in of Gwassi North MCA Evans Marieba as the acting Speaker after Speaker Elizabeth Ayoo was impeached about a fortnight ago.
The yesterday’s order required the clerk to appear in court over the contempt.
However, a few minutes later, MCAs who were at the county assembly pounced on the court orderly with kicks and blows.
“Un wanegou kawuono nikech unma uthagowa e asembli ni (We are killing you today because you are the ones interfering with us in this assembly),” shouted the MCAs.
Ochieng fell as he was being kicked.
It forced an administration office who was by the gate to rescue him. He ran to Homa Bay Police Station.
“I was serving a court order but the MCAs assaulted me. The order required the clerk to show cause why the swearing took place,” Ochieng’ said.
He recorded a statement at the Police Station.
Meanwhile, his driver had to flee in his vehicle to avoid attack by the MCAs.
Homa Bay County Assembly has had wrangles since Ayoo was impeached. Ayoo later received a court order allowing her to continue serving until the case she filed in court is concluded.
Early this week, MCAs and Assembly workers vandalized Mrs Ayoo's office and removed all the furniture in a bid to stop her from resuming duty as directed by the Labour Court.
