Speaker Elachi in court again to stop impeachment


Embattled Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi has moved to court seeking to set aside orders barring her from presiding over the sitting of the Nairobi County Assembly.
Through lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui, Elachi said her right to discharge her constitutional and statutory functions of the Nairobi County Assembly have been compromised and totally curtailed by a consent order allegedly obtained by Joy Furaha Mranja on 25th October.
Mranja allegedly obtained orders stopping Elachi from presiding over the sitting of the assembly.

Furaha also obtained orders baring Elachi, Nairobi County Assembly , Nairobi City County Service Board, Acting speaker and clerk of the Nairobi County assembly from bringing goons , strangers or any other person who is not authorized by the law to be in the Assembly who may interrupt the business of the Assembly.
Elachi argues that the consent order dated 25th October 2019 was obtained through collusion of the advocate without process having ever been served to her was a calculated of her oblique removal as the speaker of City county assembly through advocates masquerading as her advocate.

She wants the court to suspend the execution of the purported consent order.
She urged the court to nullify purported representation by lawyer Steve Mogaka together with the purported notice of appointment date be struck out and expunged from court record.

She denied any meeting the the said advocate or communication of whatever kind has ever been between them.
