Speaking on Tuesday during the Morning daybreak show at Citizen TV, Shollei said, she was surprised after the Senate took a whole year to summon Nairobi City County Governor Mike Sonko.

Sonko was summoned to give the status update and reasons why he has not picked his deputy.

"According to the constitution, Senate has the responsibility of oversight over the counties. So I am actually surprised they (Senate) have taken a year to summon Governor Sonko," she said.

The former Registrar of the Judiciary noted that the Senate should not have let Sonko operate the county for all that while without summoning.

Since the resignation of Polycarp Igathe in January 2018, Nairobi city-county has been running on the management of Governor Sonko only.

Sonko's attempts to appoint Dr.Miguna Miguna were opposed heavily by the County Assembly especially bearing in mind, the lawyer has been a great critic of the Nairobi boss and the Jubilee administration.

Governor was Sonko was summoned by the Senate to explain reasons he has delayed appointing the deputy Governor one year since Igathe resigned.
