SUMMARY

Ms. Elachi's impeachment notice is set to be presented on Monday, July 27.

She was previously ousted in 2018, after over 100 members gave the nod to her ouster.

Nairobi County ward representatives have reportedly renewed their war to oust the assembly's speaker, Mrs. Beatrice Elachi.

MCAs, allied to Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and Jubilee Party, have gathered at least 59 signatures above the required 42 signatures to table an impeachment motion.

This is the second attempt by the MCAs to impeach the speaker following allegations such as office abuse, militarizing the assembly, law disregard, victimizing assembly members and staff, impunity, corruption, poor leadership, and unlawful appointment for the assembly's clerk.

Ms. Elachi's impeachment notice is set to be presented on Monday, July 27. She was previously ousted in 2018, after over 100 members gave the nod to her ouster.

She got reinstated through a court order in October 2019, setting a new battlefield in the assembly.

Following the political wrangles associated with her reinstatement, she threw the then assembly's clerk Mr. Jacob Ngw'ele out of office.

She further dismissed Jacob from the Public Service Board, together with Majority leader Abdi Guyo, and ex-minority leader Elias Otieno.
