The signature collection for a motion to impeach Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi is currently underway with sources intimating to Ghetrto Radio News that about 26 member of county assemblies have already signed the petition.
Nairobi MCAs launched the petition against Elachi after the County Assembly Clerk Jacob Ngwele accused her of pushing an award of speaker’s house tender to persons close to him.
But in her defence Elachi denied such allegations saying the Clerk is out to taint her image and is he is the one who has audit queries to answer.
The 150 million house tender is being still being processed and it has not got assembly’s board approval.
Meanwhile Laini saba MCA Sicilia Ayot has defended the Speaker saying the clerk has to step aside to allow the investigative agencies do their job.
