BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,17TH SEPT 2018– Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi will know her fate today as Employment and Labour Relations Court rules on a suit challenging her impeachment by the Members of the County Assembly.
The embattled speaker secured orders staying her removal from office until today (Monday September 17).She has since stated that the members of county assembly have targeted her because of the firm stance she had taken in ongoing efforts to fight graft at the County Hall.
She wondered why the county lawmakers had changed tune in a corruption case against County Assembly Clerk, Jacob Ngwele.
Last week, the court threw out an application by the Assembly that sought to set aside the order halting Elachi’s impeachment.
On its part the Assembly in its application had stated that the suit she filed contesting her impeachment was defective as she did not sign an affidavit.
Elachi’s return to office turned chaotic after the MCAs stormed it insisting that she vacates.
