Kisii county assembly MCA’s attempt to impeach speaker David Kombo has taken a different dimension after police arrested a nominated Ward Representative.
Eric Changanya was picked from his colleagues by detectives and apprehended after a media briefing at a resort in the outskirts of the town.
He was whisked to Kisii county criminal investigations head office to record a statement with the MCAs following them in hot pursuit.
Changanya had sensationally claimed in the press conference that his life was in danger for police and some county enforcement officers were trailing him.
Temporary speaker, Samuel Onuko read a statement in which they condemned the unfolding occurrences at the county assembly.
According to the MCAs,the speakers’ impeachment process was unstoppable and that a special committee had been appointed to spearhead it.
They accused area police of taking sides in the dispute to the extent of keeping the county assembly mace.
Interior ministry CS Fred Matiang’i was petitioned to intervene even as the MCAs insisted the county reportedly on recess was ,infact,on.
Equally the MCAs challenged governor James Ongwae to declare his stand and move with speed to arbitrate on the matter.
They petitioned the governor to separate his office from the county assembly as one way of strengthening security.
Deputy speaker,Davis Onuso, alleged it was difficult to control entry of visitors into the county assembly, hence the possibility of goons lurking in the compound to cause mayhem was real.
