There was drama at City Hall after MCAs opposed to the return of Speaker Beatrice Elachi stormed her office seeking to eject her.
Violence broke soon after Elachi took over office accompanied by a group of youths.
Elachi locked herself in the office, leaving the group of MCAs outside where they clashed with those supporting her return.
Dozens of anti-riot police officers were also deployed outside City Hall, where teargas was lobbed to disperse the rival groups.
"She will not be a speaker here," Majority Leader Abdi Guyo declared, amid the running battles.
Business was temporarily interrupted as the MCAs wrestled on the corridors, with those opposed to Elachi saying she must vacate office.
