Video: Migori MCA in hospital after sustaining injuries in County Assembly fight

A Migori County Assembly member is nursing injuries after his arm was broken during a fight that started at the Assembly.

The chaos erupted after a section of MCAs disagreed with the reinstatement of Kanyamkago MCA George Omamba as the deputy speaker.

North Kanyamkago MCA George Omamba got orders from Migori High Court reinstating him as Deputy Speaker on Tuesday evening.

Omamba was impeached by his colleagues in May last year together with assembly clerk Tom Opere, with Bukira East MCA Mathews Chacha and Emmanuel Abala taking over in acting capacity amid court orders.

The sergeant-at-arms had to run away with the mace, the symbol of power in the assembly, leaving the MCAs engaged in fist scuffs and other forms of violence, with water bottles seemingly a favourite weapon of choice.

The injured nominated MCA Mary Ogodo was rushed to St. Joseph Mission Hospital.

The violence happened ahead of the planned tabling of an impeachment motion against Governor Okoth Obado.
