Chaos ends Kisii County Assembly peace talks

Attempts by a 10-member team to terminate a leadership standstill at the Kisii County Assembly came to an end in chaos on Wednesday.

This disorder came about following a disagreement between the two factions.

The two hold on to uncompromising situations, with some MCAs demanding speaker David Kombo not to gain access to the chambers.

In the recent past, there have been attempts to eliminate Kombo from office.

Kombo has since taken the matter to court, where he got a directive to have the impeachment proceedings against him delayed until the case is heard and determined.

Meanwhile, Birongo MCA Benard Ogari, one of the committee members selected to lead the talks, said the stand-off remains.

“We want to report to you that there has been no way found out of the impasse and as the matter stands, both protagonists in this conflict, speaker Kombo and clerk James Nyaoga have court orders,” Ogari remarked.

He added that they are considering turning to Governor James Ongwae to mediate if the standstill goes on.

“The atmosphere has not been conducive for the speaker to conduct the assembly’s business. In the event of failure, we will invite Governor Ongwae to reconcile the speaker and the MCAs,” Ogari said.

Ogari remarked that by Wednesday afternoon, there was intent by deputy speaker Davins Onus, to file another case in regards to the staff.

“With all these developments, nothing much can be done in committee stages or Kamkunjis.”

By yesterday, MCAs gainst Kombo made it known that no business will go on in the assembly until Kombo is impeached.

“We don’t care whether we will miss sittings or not but Kombo who is making claims to the post of the speaker, should not come to the chambers to preside over any sitting,” Sensi MCA Paul Angwenyi said.

Meanwhile, there is an alarm that the House could stand dissolved if members miss eight continuous sittings.
