Nairobi MCA in hot soup for posting live sessions of Assembly proceedings on social media

A Nairobi ward rep found himself in trouble after going against the rules of the county assembly.

Kennedy Obuya, Imara Daima member of the county assembly, posted live sessions of county assembly’s proceedings on Facebook.

The speaker of the county assembly Beatrice Elachi accused the first time ward representative of going against the house rule and posting a live video on his social media account on June 2, 2020.

Mrs. Elachi said Mr. Obuya’s behavior went against the provisions of assembly’s Standing Order 235 hence calling on the privileges and power committee to investigate the issue.

“At this point, I need to point out Mr. Obuya, Imara Daima member for posting a live stream on Facebook, during the house proceedings on June 2, 2020. He failed to observe the provisions of this standing order. The powers and privileges committee will investigate this matter,” said Mrs. Elachi.

Cameras not allowed

She further stated that rule No. 6 prohibits any camera, broadcasting, or recording in the assembly without permission.

According to Ms. Elachi, some MCAs breached the rule knowingly, which were put in place to protect the House dignity. Additionally, she said the assembly didn’t have the power to stop what may go out to the public.

As a result, members who will go against the rule will face stringent measures. The former nominated senator said the decision won’t gag anybody but protect the assembly’s image. Furthermore, the house will continue to enjoy privileges as before.
