The troubles bedeviling Nairobi County are far from Over. This is after 70 members of county assembly on Sunday vowed to impeach Speaker Beatrice Elachi over claims of nepotism, abuse of office among other allegations.

According to Governor Sonko’s director of communication Elkana Jacob, the ‘movie’ might be happening anytime soon.

The political romance between Sonko and Elachi was admirable until recently when Elachi accused the governor of going against the terms of the Deed of Transfer by advertising for waivers on licenses for new businesses.

Governor  Sonko on the other hand intensified calls for the resignation of Nairobi Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi. According to Sonko, Elachi has been frustrating to his leadership.

Their differences were made public when Elachi okayed the contested Nairobi County Supplementary Appropriations Act, 2020. The Solicitor General Kennedy Ogeto later annulled the Act.

Before becoming the speaker of the Nairobi County Assembly, Elachi was a nominated member of parliament courtesy of Jubilee Party.
