County as­sem­bly ma­jor­ity whip locked out of his of­fice as con­flicts build up

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Drama at the Nairobi as­sem­bly con­tin­ues to un­fold af­ter Ma­jor­ity chief whip David Mbe­ria was kicked out of of­fice on Thursday. The as­sem­bly pub­lic ser­vice board chaired by speaker Alex Magelo locked Mbe­ria’s of­fice af­ter a scuf­fle with ma­jor­ity leader Elias Otieno in the cham­ber on Tues­day.

“They are say­ing they are dis­ci­plin­ing me. I dis­agreed with the ma­jor­ity leader and that is why I have been locked out of my of­fice. They think the of­fice is a favour to me, I don’t care, I will serve my party even from the cor­ri­dors,” Mbe­ria said.

Mbe­ria and Otieno al­most came to blows in the cham­ber on Tues­day when the im­peach­ment mo­tion against Gov­er­nor Evans Kidero was be­ing tabled. Mberi has ac­cused Otieno of be­lit­tling him and tak­ing over his roles. Speaker Magelo and the ma­jor­ity leader were un­avail­able for com­ment.
