After resolving the wrangles at the Nyamira County Assembly on Monday, the speaker of Nyamira Assembly Moffat Teya has finally lifted the suspension of the three MCAs who had been suspended two weeks ago.
The three MCAs had been suspended following chaos at the assembly over committees realignment forcing security agencies to camp at the assembly, where running battles were experienced between the anti-riot police officers from Nyamira Police Station and supporters of the MCAs.
According to the speaker, the lifting of the suspension is a way of promoting peace and harmony as defined in the assembly’s standing orders.
“In the spirit of unity and harmony and the purpose of development according to standing order number one and number two, the honourable speaker has lifted the suspension of Laban Masira (Nyamaiya Ward), Duke Omoti, (Kiabonyoru Ward) and Fred Nyachae (Magwagwa Ward). The three members will resume and attend the county assembly sittings from Thursday,” Teya ruled on Tuesday.
Unending wrangles at the County Assembly of Nyamira had partially brought to a halt the important businesses to be discussed during the various sessions at the assembly prompting the intervention of the governor who held a fruitful meeting in Kisii Town on Monday thus ending the wrangles and uniting the warring sides.
“Our members had decided to bring trouble in the assembly over some few issues here and there but we have resolved to work together for the sake of our people and the development of our county,” Nyaribo told journalists in Kisii Town after meeting the MCAs.
Nyaribo condemned a section of Members of Parliament whom he said had a hand in the wrangles and urged them to desist from interfering from the affairs of the county.
“I know this problem we have been facing is part of a plan by some outside forces who are led by some Members of Parliament that do not want the county to develop but I am warning them to desist forthwith from interfering with our issues since as a county government we are keen in developing our County,” Nyaribo said.
The MCAs had turned against each other blaming a section of their colleagues siding with rebel Mcas and the speaker to counter development agendas in the county that should be discussed in the assembly.
