Beatrice Elachi has today resigned as Nairobi County Assembly speaker. Elachi has been in a long-drawn-out tussle with the Nairobi MCAs.
Speaking to the press on Teusday morning, she stated that she had tendered her resignation to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
She further cited “lots of conflicts” and “life-threatening incidents” in the recent days for her decision to leave office.
Deputy speaker, Ruai MCA John Kamangu, will take over the speaker roles in acting capacity.
