Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi , who has been at the focal point of extended force fight with MCAs, has left her position.
Ms Elachi in a broadcast address on Tuesday said she offered her acquiescence because of “hazardous rates” that has made her work illogical at City Hall.
She gave over to her agent John Kamangu, who will take up her activity in an acting limit. Mr Kamangu is the Ruai individual from the district gathering (MCA).
“This is the right time…Last time I left with my head down, this time I leave with my head high, without force,” she said.
She leaves the seat to Deputy Speaker and Ruai MCA John Kamangu.
“I humbly tender my resignation to President Uhuru Kenyatta. For the last few days there have been life-threatening incidents. I appoint my deputy speaker, John Kamangu, as acting speaker,” Elachi said.
“That is the critical agenda…the legacy for our President and I believe he would be proud to see us support him. If I ever did wrong, within the duties I was given, I ask for forgiveness,” she said.
Elachi advised Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko with whom she has had a frosty relationship to focus on God and stop intimidation.
“I think I was the biggest stumbling block for the governor but I want to pray for him. Governor, focus on God and stop threatening people’s lives, it does not help,” she said.
