Sonko managed to get into the County Assembly as Kidero addressed the MCAs affecting proceedings briefly.

Sonko accuses Kidero administration of corruption and has been demanding action to address the alleged mess but the governor denies the claims. Kidero has been accusing Sonko of witch-hunt.

The police lorry parked outside City Hall as the groups chanted opposing slogans for almost two hours amid tension of possible clash.
