Beatrice Elachi is one of the few female politicians who’ve created a niche for themselves in the male-dominated field.
Elachi was elected the Nairobi County speaker on 6 September 2017 where she served upto August 11, 2020, when she announced her resignation.
She replaced Alex Ole Magelo, who did not contest his seat after the 2017 general elections.
Little is known about Elachi’s family because she rarely posts about her private life.
She resigned on Tuesday morning and in her speech she said,
This is the right time…Last time I left with my head down, this time I leave with my head high, without force.
She handed over to her deputy.
I humbly tender my resignation to President Uhuru Kenyatta. For the last few days there have been life-threatening incidents. I appoint my deputy speaker, John Kamangu, as acting speaker.
Her resignation comes after Nairobi county was rocked with chaos with MCAs supporting Mike Sonko clashing with their opponents over leadership of the county.
