The MCAs rebelled against the Orange Democratic Movement(ODM). They were reported to have reneged against the party stand following a period of disagreement over how the house issues were being conducted by the current leadership.

Following the bold vote, Kanyadoto MCA Walter Muok was installed as the new majority leader.

Meanwhile, a nominated Member of County Assembly (MCA) on Tuesday also lost her seat at the Nairobi House.
