The Speaker of Nairobi County Assembly, Beatrice Elachi, has resigned from her position.
Speaking on a Tuesday morning Beatrice says she is moving on to a new season in her political career and journey and going back to her Dagoretti North constituents.
”This is the right time…Last time I left with my head down this time I leave with my head high, without force,” she said.
Elachi handed over the key role to her deputy John Kamangu, pending the search for a new office holder.
“I humbly tender my resignation to President Uhuru Kenya. For the last few days there have been life threatening incidences. I appoint my deputy speaker, John Kamangu as acting speaker,” Elachi said.
