Running battles experienced in Nyamira Town as residents barricade access to the assembly

There were running battles in Nyamira Town as residents lit bonfires and barricaded the entrance to the county assembly premises.

The residents and anti-riot police officers engaged in running battles as businesses closed down.

The town remained a no go zone as police barricaded the entrance to the Central Business District.

Police managed to put out fires that were lit and managed to calm the situation.

This comes after Governor Amos Nyaribo said he will hold a meeting with the MCA’s to try and solve the ongoing wrangles.

While addressing journalists in his office on Thursday morning, speaker Moffat Teya said the chaos that was experienced is uncalled for.

“This morning as I came to work, as usual, I found the gate barricaded and there was chaos everywhere. I call upon our residents to remain calm as we work and ensure there is service,” Teya said.

However, the address by the speaker was cut short by police officers entered the office and journalists left.

The morning Assembly sessions however proceeded with ten members who were debating on the county physical strategy paper.

Other members who were against the debate led by Bomwagamo MCA Charles Barongo and nominated mca Eznah Mokua left the chambers in protest about the assembly sergeant at arms who were standing behind them.

After a while, Barongo came back to the assembly protesting for lack of enough quorum.
