There was drama, outside Kisii Governor James Ongwae’s office after hired goons on Tuesday evening smashed vehicles belonging to Ward Reps rooting for the removal of House Speaker David Kombo.

There had been no arrests by Wednesday despite the massive presence of police who quickly filtered out leaving the goons to vandalize the cars with abandon.

Cars belonging to Anyona Aika (Masimba), Eric Janganya (Nominee), and Charles Chweya (Boikanga) were vandalized.

They, alongside other 37 Ward Reps, however escaped death after they fought their way out of the assembly parking lot.

Enforcement officers watched helpless as the goons ransacked the cars looting and bludgeoning the Ward Reps.

Governor Ongwae is said to be opposing the ongoing plot to kick speaker Kombo 80 out.

The former South Mugirango MP and four service board members are facing probe for abuse of office.

Kombo has been variously accused of blatant violation of house rules and failing to pay for life insurance for the MCAs.

Yesterday the Ward Reps had walked out of their chambers and spoke to journalists briefly outside before hell broke loose.

Some Ward Reps escaped with injuries following the melee as stones were pelted.

There was a momentary standoff as some brave Ward Reps stood to face off with the goons.

Eric Janganya, a nominee, had to take a hammer to ward off goons who were bent to harm him.

His car was smashed before he managed to flee.

Inside the assembly, the proceedings went on for 30 minutes under the guidance of Acting Speaker Samuel Onuko before the house determined that to a special adhoc committee be established to probe the speaker, David Kombo.

“The committee formed is mandated to probe the former speaker’s conduct and undertake lifestyle audits on them. This Assembly, under the former speaker, had sunk to all its all time low and it is time it is redeemed,” said Moticho MCA Evans Mokoro.
