Pressure is mounting on Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi to step aside after being suspended from the assembly’s service board with an impeachment motion against her set to be tabled before the Assembly on Tuesday.
Ms Elachi was suspended as the chair of the board on Monday in absentia by the other three members of the Nairobi County Assembly Service Board who cited lack of confidence in her leadership.
Majority leader Mr Abdi Guyo, said that the decision was arrived at by the members of the board in a meeting held on Monday.
“We as the board have lost confidence in her and she is no longer our chairperson, and we have decided that the vice chair should act now as the chair,” said Mr Guyo.
The majority leader also accused Ms Elachi of abuse of office, asking the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to investigate the Speaker for allegedly flying on a first-class ticket contrary to the law.
