Beatrice Elachi is back in office as Nairobi County Assembly Speaker following a court order that reinstated her after impeachment.
In a short video circulated to newsrooms by the County Government’s Director of Communications Elkana Jacob, Elachi is heard telling Governor Mike Sonko that she is back and ready to receive him at the airport when he arrives from France.
She did not have kind words for MCAs who kicked her out of office in dramatic scenes that went viral on social media in September last year.
Elachi had stayed away from office following acrimony from a section of County Assembly members who were opposed to her reinstatement, but she walked in on Wednesday and assumed her responsibility.
Ngara MCA Chege Mwaura, who has been acting in the position, however, insists he is still in charge.
