A Second Win for Speaker Elachi as Courts Rescue Her from Rogue Jubilee MCAs

On Tuesday, 67 Jubilee MCAs hatched a second plot to oust embattled Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi turning the precincts of the County Assembly into a war zone, complete with kicks and blows from rival groups.

Joy Furaha Mranja, a resident, had obtained orders stopping Elachi from presiding over assembly sittings. She also stopped her, the assembly, the Nairobi City County Service Board, the acting speaker and clerk from bringing goons, strangers or any other person who is not authorised by law to be in the assembly and who may interrupt its business.

But Elachi, in her counter-application, said her right to move freely and to discharge her constitutional functions as the speaker had been compromised and totally curtailed.

She claimed the consent order dated October 25, 2019, was obtained through the collusion of the advocates, yet she was never served. Elachi said the consent order was calculated at her oblique removal as the speaker through advocates masquerading as her legal representatives.

“No advocate-client relationship has ever subsisted between Elachi and the said Musyoki and Co. Advocates to permit Mogaka Advocate to enter into any consent in these or any other proceedings on behalf of the respondent,” court documents said.
