The motion on the floor was to oust clerk Daniel Kaudo from office.

Homa Bay Deputy Speaker Godfrey Anyango, who stood on a point of order to oppose the motion, was wrestled to the ground and stripped down to his innerwear in the plenary.

Mr Anyango was pinned down by the assembly’s Sergeant at Arms by members who were furious at him for opposing the motion.

Opposing sides exchanged blows and some had blood stains on their clothes.

All members, who opposed the ouster bid, were ejected from the chamber and ordered not to step foot at the legislative House for 15 days.

Speaker Elizabeth Ayoo was shielded by a section of the MCAs as some accused her of being unfair during debates. She was accused of only selecting MCAs who support the discussion of the day.
