How Raila's Insult Pushed Elachi Back Into Office

  • Embattled Nairobi Speaker Beatrice Elachi on Wednesday, October 9, made a comeback to her office months after she was forcefully evicted.

    New details have emerged that Raila Odinga had a hand in her return after public spats were witnessed and private meetings were held to resolve the matter.

    An MCA quoted in the Daily Nation on Monday, October 14, stated that assembly former majority leader Abdi Guyo's apparent insult on their party leader is what galvanised the party members against Elachi's impeachment.

    The majority leader is alleged to have roped in Raila's name during Elachi's impeachment saga while linking Deputy President William Ruto to the motion to remove her from office.

    “Because the majority leader badmouthed Raila Odinga, we decided to support Elachi since we have had no problems with her. We had to bring her back to restore sanity in the assembly after the chaos that was witnessed on Tuesday afternoon,” the MCA revealed.

    The politician was further quoted by the publication stating, "Raila directed our assembly leadership to allow for the return of Elachi as she had a valid court order.” 

    Elachi's comeback was filled with goons that were publicly shouting their allegiance to the governor while at the same time, accusing Matopeni MCA Guyo of causing a rift in the county.

    "Guyo respect the governor. You will know who this Nairobi belongs to," they shouted.

    Elachi, however, maintained that the governor did not have a hand in her return. She divulged that the constant insults she had received from Guyo prompted her return to the office.
