Nairobi MCAs meeting in camera over county crisis

Members of County Assembly of Nairobi are set to hold a closed door meeting to discuss the ‘state of affairs at City Hall’, sparking speculation theat they could be planning to impeach embattled Governor Mike Sonko.

All the 85 MCAs will hold an informal meeting commonly known as the Kamkunji at the County assembly premises on Saturday.

This is according to a communique to the members by Minority Chief Whip Peter Imwatok in their WhatsApp group.

The meeting was scheduled to kickoff at 8.30am and all members were requested to attend without failure.

Reports had emerged on Wednesday that a section of ODM MCAs were collecting signatures to impeach Sonko, moments after the court barred him from accessing his office.

Minority leader David Mberia downplayed the allegations and stated that they were still waiting for directions from their party chief Raila Odinga.

However, the ODM MCAs are on record saying that they will not hesitate to bring a motion if their party leader directs them to do so.

The county assembly of Nairobi has been rocked by chaos and chaos since speaker Beatrice Elachi returned following her impeachment in September 2018.

A section of Jubilee MCAs allied to ousted majority leader Abdi Guyo have also vowed to support the ouster motion if its brought on the floor.

The flashy county boss was charged with corruption on Monday but Chief anti-corruption magistrate Douglas Ogoti released him on a Sh15 million cash bail and stopped him from accessing his office at the city hall.

Right now, City Hall is on an autopilot after Sonko, who has run city hall for two years without a deputy ignored calls to nominate one in line with Supreme Court advisory rendered two months after Polycarp Igathe’s resignation.
