A senior Kisii County Assembly official on Friday claimed his life is in danger following speaker David Kombo’s impeachment saga.
David Mbaka, the Assembly Deputy Clerk has since filed a complaint with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations office in Kisii.
He is accusing an Assembly member of issuing a threat on life Wednesday evening in connection to the role he played in annulling the gazette notice confirming the impeachment of Kombo.
He said the ward representative had told him to leave any matter touching on Kombo or face some unspecified action.
“Interestingly, some house assembly members are now taking matters personal even what we are doing is discharge duties as public servants,” said Mbaka.
The claims on life on the deputy clerk adds a new twist to the raging battles touching on the impeachment of Kombo.
The embattled speaker has since gone to court to ward off the impeachment.
On Tuesday, three Ward Reps were injured during a melee at the Kisii County Assembly following botched discussions to elect a new speaker
Kombo has however said he is back in office courtesy of a court order which put a break to impeachment proceedings until the matter is heard and determined.
On Friday, the deputy clerk has no direct political role to play in the saga pitting factions in the assembly.
He explained that early, the clerk, Nyaoga, has acted outside the law when he issued a gazette notice okaying the Speaker’s impeachment.
“Records show he was away on suspension and thus could not abrogate himself powers to issue a gazette notice,” said Mbaka.
The tension in the Kisii may cause a delay in passing the budget according to some MCAs.
