Kina, who was accompanied by his colleagues Mohamed Faki (Mombasa) and Charles Kibiru (Kirinyaga), said Sonko would be grilled on December 3 and Waiguru the next day. On October 29, Sonko failed to appear before the committee led by Homa Bay Senator Moses Kajwang' for the third time in a row, forcing the House team to fine him Sh500,000. He was first invited to appear before the committee on July 4, then on August 6. He did not turn up, but sent his Finance Executive Charles Kerich.
