    Details have also emerged that on October 4, the governor wrote to Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi and Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju, nominating another MCA to replace Guyo as majority leader.

    The governor also accused the ward rep of undermining his authority and thus, making it hard to impliment the party's manifesto. 

    “Consequently, I am forwarding to you the name of Mark Ndung’u as the new majority leader designate. Kindly effect appropriately,” part of the letter read. 

    On September 27, Governor Sonko, through a full-page advertisment on The Standard, castigated Guyo and Minority Whip Peter Imwatok.

    The duo then led MCAs in criticising the county boss over frequent sacking and suspensions. 

    During the forceful cameback of Speaker Elachi on October 9,  irrate youth lashed out at the majority leader shouting “Guyo heshimu governor (respect the governor). You will know who this Nairobi belongs to.”  

    He was subsequently removed from office and replaced with Maringo Hamza Ward Representative Mark Ndung'u.
