BY CORRESPONDENT,10TH SEPT 2019-Matters got complicated on Tuesday for Kisumu speaker Onyango Oloo after a section of Members of County Assembly (MCAs) forcefully ejected the Deputy Speaker accusing him of shielding embattled Assembly Speaker Onyango Oloo from accountability.
It was Nyalenda B MCA Joseph Olale who forced his Kajulu counterpart Roy Samo who doubles up as the Deputy Speaker out of the Speaker’s seat in the chamber as a session convened to discuss Oloo’s conduct degenerated into chaos.
Kisumu North MCA Elisha Oraro who had taken over as Temporary Speaker is set to be sworn in as Acting Speaker after the members resolved to oust Oloo citing gross misconduct and violation of Article 6 of the Constitution (2010) on leadership and integrity.
Oloo, a former Board Chairperson of the Lake Basin Development Authority (LBDA) is accused of acting with others to inflate the cost of the Lake Basin Mall from Sh2.5 billion to Sh4.1 billion.
Oloo who has since been charged is accused of receiving a Sh 17 million bribe from the firm contracted to build the mall to approve the variation of the construction cost by 57 per cent against procurement guidelines that only allow a variation of up to 25 per cent.
