The MCAs unanimously supported the motion to form House Rules, Privileges and Business Committee, effectively ending the standoff that had split the assembly in the middle.
Gaturi South MCA John Mwangi, however, claimed that it was the County Executive that had been bribing his counterparts to frustrate County Assembly business.
The MCAs now resume regular sittings after a motion to set up the committee that sets the legislative agenda for the Assembly and disciplines wayward members was defeated twice in a span of three weeks.
