  • A Member of Siaya County Assembly was, on Friday, barred from its sittings for the third time in a period of three months.

    The Standard reported that South East Alego MCA, Joseph Mboha, was Wednesday suspended on grounds that he attempted to storm the county assembly with rowdy youth in tow.

    Through a letter signed by County Assembly Clerk, Eric Ogenga, Mboha was further accused of acting disorderly and jumping over the assembly security wall aided by goons.

    “You went further to assault an assembly staff who in the line of his official duty was trying to restrict your disorderly behaviour,” added the letter.

    Mboha was suspended for 28 days.

    The embattled legislator was first suspended on May 2 over gross misconduct, but he rushed to the high court and had the suspension temporarily lifted.

    On May 7, Mboha was served with another suspension order after some five petitioners wanted him ejected from office but he later returned with a court order lifting the suspension as well.

    Confirming the two suspensions, Speaker George Okode revealed that he received the orders on Wednesday morning.

    “While shouting at the reception area, the MCA uttered disenchanting words against the speaker and other officers of the assembly,” stated Okode.

    The matter was forwarded to the Assembly's Powers and Privileges Committee which shall communicate with the MCA in subsequence.
