Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko is expected before the Senate to explain why he has yet to appoint a deputy governor 15 months after Polycarp Igathe resigned on account of failing to win trust from his boss, Mike Sonko.

Nairobi Senator Johnstone Sakaja sought a statement from the Senate Standing Committee on Devolution, Intergovernmental and Intercounty Relations on the composition of the county government.

Sakaja said the county administration is not properly constituted. He wants Sonko to explain why he is operating an incomplete government in violation of Article 179 (1) and (2) of the Constitution.

The Senator also want Sonko to explain why the County had been operating without required number of County Executive Committee members.

Governor Sonko made a mini-reshuffle in his administration last month, a move viewed as a way of fixing the gaps in his Cabinet and streamlining service delivery.

For more than six months, the county government has been operating with only five substantive executives against the required 10. This followed the resignation of some executives. Others had their terms expire.

The county also lacks a substantive county attorney, with David Oseko still holding the position in an acting capacity. Former attorney Lydia Kwamboka was fired last year. Another position without a substantive officeholder is that of county secretary.
