Nairobi County Speaker Beatrice Elachi and 30 MCAs were on Wednesday night forced to spend the night at the assembly after hired goons attempted to attack them.

The drama is reported to have been caused by a section of the MCA’s opposed allocation of 24.6 billion to the newly formed Nairobi Metropolitan Service(NMS).

Police were forced to fire in the air and even lob teargas on Thursday morning to disperse the agitated group outside City Hall.

According to Elachi and the 30 MCAs, they were informed on plans to disrupt today’s sitting meant to allocate the funds to NMS.

In order to make things possible they were forced to spend the night at the premise and allocate the funds.

Abdi Guyo led other MCAs on Wednesday evening to oppose the move accompanied by hired goons.

Police are reported to have recovered crude weapons and guns during the Thursday morning drama with those arrested being held at Central Police Station.

Security has been beefed up as Elachi and her team are still locked in pending to table the motion in the afternoon at the Assembly.
