City Hall Chaos: MCAs Evict Finance Minister

Chaos and drama rocked City Hall on Monday as some members of county assembly evicted CEC Member for Finance Pauline Kahiga.

The MCAs backed by goons, stormed Kahiga’s office to evict her for allegedly frustrating Nairobi residents by withholding funds to the county’s services.

The MCAs later installed Trade Executive Allan Igambi in place of Ms Kahiga as the media was barred from the centre of the drama , with the entrance to the office on the first floor blocked.

The drama started shortly before 11am, where the ward representatives insisted that Ms Kahiga should keep to her lands docket.

Kahiga managed to sneak out of City Hall after she got a tip off and reported the alleged intimidation at the adjacent Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) Police Station.

Kahiga has been accused by the MCAs of deliberately blocking the payment of eligible bills.

The Assembly’s Minority Whip Peter Imwatok alleged tha some MCAs allied to Sonko want Sh1 billion that was released by the Treasury for the payment of pending bill diverted, a move which Kahiga declined.
