The ward reps traded blows during the tabling of the motion to impeach Dr Kidero on September 29, 2016.

In a letter dated November 1, 2016, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has asked the MCAs to appear before its detectives between November 4 and November 10, 2016.

The investigation will look into the leaders' conduct in the hallowed chambers of the city county.

SHED LIGHT

"The commission would like you to shed light on the matter and record a statement regarding the same," the letter reads in part.

The group will be investigated by EACC officers Derrick Kaisha and Jackson Agai.

“Take notice that failure to adhere to this notice will attract penal consequences,” the letter adds.

The fight broke out after Viwandani MCA Samwel Nyang'wara stood to table the motion that he sponsored to oust Dr Kidero.

Dandora Phase 4 Ward Representative Dan Oria, who is accused of grabbing the paper containing the motion from Mr Nyangwara before punching him, is scheduled to appear before the EACC on November 7.
