The women MCAs caused havoc after they were locked out of the county assembly chambers.

The county Assembly Sergent of Arms had hard times to control the furious women legislators , most of whom nominated MCAs, who were singing and shouting on top of their voices outside the chambers.

Security officers called in to contain the situation were also forced to flee from the scene after the women declined  to heed their orders for calm.

Led by County Assembly deputy majority leader  Anisa Mwakio , the women accused their elected colleagues of infringing the constitution by conducting several house business without involving nominated MCAs.

They  blames the County Speaker Mr. Meshack Maghanga for allegedly being behind orders issued to lock them out despite being invited officially to attend the special house sitting.

The special sitting was called to elect  new committee members after dissolving and reducing the number of committees from 35 to 23 , according to the county Speaker.

However, the nominated MCAs said they will not accept to be used as flower girls to pass bills without participating in house committees.

The crisis meeting which also discussed the county supplementary budget was called after the health workers threatened to go on strike if they will not get their salaries end of this month.

MCAs had earlier proposed a ksh 30million supplementary budget for developments projects in every ward.
