Kisii minority MCAs on Tuesday walked out of the assembly in protest over what they termed as 'faulty'

microphones.

The ward reps led by Samuel Apoko (Kiogoro) and his Tabaka counterpart Apepo Ombasa said that they were disadvantaged when it came debating.

The walkout came after deputy Speaker Davins Onuso

urged the minority members to cross over and use the microphones on the majority side.

They were debating on the second report of the Health committee on the site visit to the

subcounties

hospitals.

“Speaker we are urging you to adjourn the House until the problem

is rectified

by those concerned,” Apoko said.

He said the minority MCAs will

not

be going to cross over to use microphones used by the majority and yet they had theirs.

"We are going to walk out of the House until the mess is cleared,”

Apepo

said.

Efforts by the leader of majority Timothy Ogugu to convince the opposition to continue with the debate fell on deaf ears as they walked out.
