  • Majority of the MCAs were, however, irked by the move and read mischief  in the motion, leading to commotion in the assembly that interrupted the afternoon session.

Drama ensued at the Kisumu County Assembly on Wednesday afternoon after a motion was tabled to impeach Speaker Onyango Oloo.

The motion, drafted by nominated MCA Caleb Omoro, sought to probe the conduct of the Speaker to give way for his impeachment.

Majority of the MCAs were, however, irked by the move and read mischief  in the motion, leading to commotion in the assembly that interrupted the afternoon session.

The MCAs said they had planned to remove two members from the Assembly Service Board but not the Speaker, further adding that the motion on the impeachment of Speaker Oloo was a calculated move.

Kolwa East Ward representative Stephen Owiti said the motion was not properly moved in the House as no MCA appended their signature, adding that the standing orders stipulate the procedure for removing a Speaker.

The MCAs further demanded that the motion be expunged from the assembly records even as interim Speaker Roy Samo ruled that the matter be suspended, a move which was vehemently opposed by the MCAs.
