Nairobi MCA had passed a motion to impeach Elachi with 103 out of 107 MCA’s voting in support of it.

The Employment and Labour Relation court, however, passed an order blocking the MCAs from impeaching the embattled Speaker.

They had accused Elachi of misappropriation of taxpayer money and abuse of office among other allegations.
