Kileleshwa MCA Robert Alai Faces Disciplinary Action for Attending Gachagua Meeting


Kileleshwa Member of County Assembly, Robert Alai may face disciplinary action from the Azimio One Coalition after he attended a meeting organised by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

In a letter seen by, the MCA was asked to show cause why he shouldn’t be disciplined after he allegedly defied the party’s directive to abscond the meeting.

According to the Majority chief Whip of the Nairobi County Assembly, Moses Ogeto, Alai defied orders issued to Azimio members on April 22.

Ogeto further detailed that Alai’s attendance was in contravention of Azimio’s policies and depicted support of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance.

Further, the Chief Whip stated that  Alai openly supported Kenya Kwanza’s directives in public, a move that hasn’t augured well with the rival Azimio Coalition.

“Your unethical dalliance and open affection towards our rival coalition, KENYA KWANZA as evidenced by your speech during the meeting, is treated as serious misconduct from your side towards the Leadership of the House and the leadership of AZIMIO ONE KENYA COALITION in general,” stated  Ogeto.

However, on the other hand, Alai has defended himself stating that his attendance was in the interest of the electorate as the meeting was meant to discuss matters of interest to Nairobi residents.

Alai also explained that the opposition’s failure to attend such meetings would present adverse outcomes for Nairobians as crucial policies were discussed in such forums.

“How can we prevent adverse outcomes for those we represent by being barred from such critical discussions? The recent developments affecting those we represent in Mathare, Embakasi, and Langata are direct results of policies made without input,”  noted Alai.

Further, Alai rebutted that failure to heed to such invitations was a failure to Nairobians who elected the Azimio leaders.

“By sidelining Azimio One Kenya Coalition Party elected leaders from contributing to policy discussions, aren’t we failing the very people who depend on us to safeguard their interests?

The meeting in question was held on April 24, at Gachagua’s Karen residence. Its agenda focused on the Nairobi River’s Action Plan implementation.
