Another dramatic violence occurred in Homa Bay County assembly after MCAs prevented aÂ courtÂ process server from serving the county assembly clerk with aÂ courtÂ order.
TheÂ courtÂ process server identified as Elivis Ochiengâ€™ fromÂ Kisumu HighÂ CourtÂ went to the assembly yesterday to serve the Clerk -Daniel Kaudo over allegedÂ contempt ofÂ Court.
The contempt orderÂ 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 yesterdayâ€™s order required the clerk to appear inÂ courtÂ over the contempt.
However, a few minutes later, MCAs who were at the county assembly pounced on theÂ courtÂ orderly with kicks and blows.
â€œUn wanegou kawuono nikech unma uthagowa e asembli ni (We are killing you today because you are the ones interfering with us in this assembly),â€ 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.
â€œI was serving aÂ courtÂ order but the MCAsÂ assaultedÂ me. The order required the clerk to show cause why the swearing took place,â€ Ochiengâ€™ 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 aÂ courtÂ order allowing her to continue serving until the case she filed inÂ courtÂ is concluded.
Early this week, MCAsÂ and Assembly workersÂ vandalizedÂ Mrs Ayoo's office and removed all the furniture in a bid to stop her from resuming duty as directed by the Labour Court.
