Acting Kisumu Speaker rushed to hospital after road accident


Acting Kisumu County Assembly Speaker Elisha Oraro escaped death has been hospitalised following a road accident along the Kapsabet Road.
His car is said to have hit a cow in Mosoriot area on Friday as he was headed for an assembly meeting in Eldoret.
Kondele MCA Joachim Oketch, who was in a different vehicle said that they rushed him to hospital.
Oraro’s ascent to the Speaker’s seat has been marred with controversy after warring factions clashed over his legibility.
In September this year, there was fracas at the County Assembly after a section of MCAs demanded that the incumbent Speaker Onyango Oloo step aside over the Sh2.1 billion Lake Basin mall scandal.
However, Oloo’s allies seemed keen to block the agenda and ended up exchanging blows inside the chambers.
When the deputy speaker walked in, the opposing faction swiftly ejected him as the Sergeants at Arms also walked out in protest.
One of his colleagues had reportedly been slapped by an MCA.
