According to the DCI, Beatrice Elachi allocated Ksh. 10 Million for her house refurbishment. She alleged that Millions were set aside for governor's residence so she had to.

“She was advised not to open many battlefronts, but she opted to act unilaterally. She does not have the blessings of the party,” a Jubilee official said.

As one strategy to resolve the leadership crisis in the county, there were reports of a push to impeach Sonko and have Elachi act for 60 days as fresh elections are held.

Elachi had until yesterday to respond to a letter from the EACC detailing the claims against her, which were largely related to the appointment of Monica Muthami as the acting assembly clerk to approve the assembly’s spending.

The speaker also faces accusations of frustrating the return to office of Jacob Ngwele as a clerk because of their past conflicts, despite a court order.

She had wars with her Public service board members where she chairs.  It's mainly over the approval of buildings and issuance of certificates for hotels and restaurants within the city. There were claims of kickbacks.
