Embattled Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko who was impeached prepares to know his fate early as next week when senators convene in a special sitting on the matter.


Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka said he is in discussion with the Majority Leader Samuel Poghisio and his Minority counterpart James Orengo on when to convene a special sitting.


The move comes after he received a notification from the Nairobi Speaker Benson Mutura on the assembly's resolution of impeachment.


"I have received the notification and the relevant documents. I am now consultation to see if we can convene a special sitting next week because the law requires that we consider this matter within seven days of notification," he said.


The Senators are already in for a long recess from last Tuesday and are expected to resume full sittings on February 9, 2021.


88 MCAs on Thursday voted to impeach the questionable governor who is fighting corruption suits in court.
