Speaker Mutura also decided that all committee sessions will be held virtually online.

Nairobi County Assembly Majority leader Abdi Guyo who had just recovered from Covid urged members to support the motion of adjourning the house sittings until such a time when the situation will be manageable.

“nothing should be put ahead of people’s lives and the break is necessary to monitor the spread of the disease,” Michael Ogada, Minority leader in the County Assemby said.

Non- essential staff members in the County assembly will also be staying away as part of Covid-19 third wave containment measures.

Other counties such as Kisumu also sent non-essential staff home.
