Panic In Nyandarua As Speaker And MCAs Clash

There was a stand-off at the Nyandarua County Assembly on Tuesday as leadership wrangles pitting embattled Speaker Ndegwa Wahome and MCAs opposed to his leadership played out.

The speaker arrived at the House shortly before 9am ready to resume his duties following a period where he was ousted before moving to court to challenge the process citing lack of legality.

In his decision, the appointed authority further arranged that Leader of Majority Wambugu King'ori, delegate speaker Zachary Njeru, and assistant Elizabeth Muthui pay a fine of Ksh.400,000 each or serve a prison term of two months after they were seen as blameworthy of disdain of court. 

In any case, when he answered to the Assembly, Speaker Wahome couldn't access the chambers, in what he named as "explicit negligence to law and order." 

He blamed Governor Francis Kimemia for sustaining the deadlock for his own advantage, regardless of an adversary part of MCAs saying the matter was them and the Wahome, in this way excusing the lead representative. 

As the speaker and individuals from staff stayed abandoned external the gathering, the other segment of MCAs were in the chambers prepared to execute the matter of the day in a meeting drove by First Chair of the Speakers board Wanjiku Muhoho.
