BY CORRESPONDENT,KISUMU,18TH SEPT 2019-The effort of besieged Kisumu Speaker Onyango Oloo to enter the County Assembly on Wedsnaedays morning were met with resistance after a heavy contingent of anti-riot officers repulsed him.
The officers lobbed teargas canisters with Onyango’s close friend Roy Samo (MCA Kajulu ward) also finding himself in trouble .
Kenyans who were passing by going about their business were also forced to scamper for safety as police engaged in running battles with the lawmakers outside the Assembly precinct.
This comes just a day after Kisumu County MCAs drafted a motion to impeach the embattled Oloo who is facing fraud-related charges.
The MCAs further sought a replacement, Kisumu North MCA Elisha Oraro, as acting Speaker.
The impeachment plan is said to have been engineered by Kondele ward MCA Joachim Oketch.
He tabled a notice of motion to permanently remove Oloo as the substantive Speaker of the Kisumu County Assembly.
In the motion that is yet to be debated, Oketch cites several grounds for the ouster of the embattled Speaker.
Among them is the recent allegations of corruption in the construction of the Lake Basin mall.
The MCA holds that Oloo having been charged alongside others is unfit to hold public office until he is cleared of any wrongdoing.
