Nairobi County assembly has today suspended Matopeni Spring Valley MCA Abdi Ibrahim Hassan Guyo after missing eleven consecutive  house sittings amounting to one year.

In  a report tabled on Tuesday and adopted by  the members on the floor  by select Committee on Powers and Privileges  Guyo did not attend 11 sittings and did not have justifiable reasons for missing the sittings.

‘‘That there is nothing written on record by Abdi Hassan explaining to the speaker why he missed the aforementioned sittings …That Hon Abdi  Hassan by failing to attend eleven sittings without any justifiable reason , he is in breach of standing order 242 and Article 194 whose consequences  is the declaration of a vacancy in the seat of the member for Matopeni.’’ Reads the report in part.

Meanwhile the speaker has now ordered   Guyo not to set foot at the assembly precincts  until  the suspension elapses .

She further warned that her leadership will not allow such in future and that the  law will be followed to the later to deal with such a member.

‘‘Hon Abdi Hassan shall not be allowed in the assembly precincts for the next 4 months assembly sittings and cease to enjoy all the privileges  entitled to him as a member of the county assembly and office of the clerk  together with sergeant at arms are required to fully enforce these  decisions,’’she said.
