Chaos once again rocked City Hall on Tuesday morning as a section of Nairobi Members of County Assembly attempted to storm Speaker Beatrice Elachi’s office to eject her.
The MCAs wanted to serve Elachi her impeachment motion notice, claiming they had collected 62 signatures.
They encountered a contingent of police who repulsed them injuring several county assembly members among them Mlango Kubwa MCA Mutheu Musyimi.

This was the latest in a series of actions that show the divide in Nairobi County that appears to pit Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) Director General Mohammed Abdalla Badi against Governor Sonko who last week declared a dispute over the deed of transfer.
On Sunday, a group of Nairobi MCAs announced a fresh bid to impeach Elachi over allegations of abuse of office, corruption, poor leadership, victimisation of MCAs and assembly staff, impunity, disregard for the law and county orders, and militarisation of the assembly.
The county lawmakers had on Sunday collected 51 signatures way above the 42 required for an impeachment notice against the speaker to be filed in the county assembly.
