Embattled Nairobi County Assembly Clerk Back In The Assembly Amid Protests


Assembly is now  heading for another battle  as power struggles between speaker Beatrice  Elachi and embattled Clerk Jacob Ngwele continue.

Today Ngwele stormed the assembly with a group of  MCAs with a court order that affirms his reinstatement .

In his briefing with the media Ngwele accused Elachi of trying to block him from accessing his office.

‘‘I have been working from outside including signing of the salaries… I have a court order reinstating me as the Clerk  and i have also been cleared  by the EACC.’’ Ngwele  said.

Meanwhile Elachi insists that  Ngwele is no longer the clerk  and they did an interview for the same post after it was declared vacant by assembly public service board.

“Edward Gichana emerged position 1 with 79.1. Gad Awuonda position 2 with 69.1 They were followed by Sammy Kiptoo, Ngige Gitau, Mbugua Kabiro Crispin, Joseph Lemakulol and Ibrahim Ali ,” she said.

The two have been embroiled in a protracted war since 2018.

Waithaka MCA Antony Kiragu however, asked Elachi  to stop murky politics and allow Ngwele back as ordered by the court.
