Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju has given the verdict made by the party in regards to the recent chaos that marred the Nairobi County Assembly.

Following a closed door meeting, Tuju revealed that the party and the County parliament made resolutions over the latest war between Speaker Beatrice Elachi and Majority leader Abdi Guyo.

Through a tweet, the ruling party disclosed that a truce had been arrived at in a bid to contain the drama.

According to the group, Tuju remarked that one of the decisions made would be to hasten the return to power of Elachi following her removal in 2018.

“In his capacity as SG, Raphael Tuju has facilitated a truce within the County Assembly. Among the resolutions is that the leadership of the County Assembly will expedite Speaker Beatrice Elachi’s resumption to office.” read a part of the tweet.

Last Wednesday, mayhem broke loose after a group of MCAs stormed Elachi’s office and tried to evict her.

The rowdy leaders led by Guyo, were angered by her return and made their feelings known after they decided to vandalise property in the office.

Things got thick and fast when tear gas was thrown into the premises and left the leaders scampering away for safety.

The tough talking Speaker claimed that her life was in danger as the Majority leader had planned to kill her.

“If I die today, my family must hold Guyo responsible.” remarked Elachi.

She further noted that a meeting had been staged by the politician with the aim of having her bundle out of the building.

The tables on the matter turned after Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko fired Guyo as the Majority leader and replaced him with Hamza MCA Mark Ndung’u.

Through a letter that was sent to Tuju, Sonko alleged that his move was due to the leader undermining the county government through intimidation and interference.

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

On Monday, Guyo’s woes worsened after he was forced to seek help from the DCI proclaiming his life was in danger.

The embattled politician pointed out that he received death threats through text messages from unknown people.

He added that since the fracas, a group of people had been trailing him.

“If you look at the videos recorded last week, you will clearly see that the same people who beat up Timothy Muriuki are the same people chanting ‘Guyo must go’.” stated Guyo.
