Uasin Gishu Woman Representative, Gladys Boss Shollei, has issued conditions that must be adhered to if she is to appear on Citizen TV as a panelist.
Speaking on Tuesday, March 22, the vocal female lawmaker confronted Day Break host, Sam Gituku, on the choice of panelists.
The former Chief Registrar of the Judiciary argued that the panelists she was paired with were not honest in their responses to questions during the show.
Setting her conditions, Shollei stated that in future, she will only consider appearing for the interviews if Citizen TV assures her that her fellow panelists will truthfully respond to the questions asked.
“I am going to ask you, Sam, that next time you invite me to the show, invite me with the people who will faithfully answer the questions they are asked,” she stated.
“I have endevoured every time you have invited me to this show to faithfully answer questions and educate Kenyans on true facts. I never make up stories every time I come to this show.”
Shollei was appearing for the early morning show alongside Tiaty Member of Parliament, William Kamket, Nyeri County Assembly Speaker, John Kaguchia, and former Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) in the Ministry of Public Service and Gender, Beatrice Elachi.
The lawmaker singled out Kampket, accusing him of evading questions asked by the host during the morning show.
However, it is not the first time Shollei is rubbing shoulders with Gituku. In October 2021 while appearing in on the same show, she questioned why Gituku was allegedly siding with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s family after it was named in the Pandora Papers.
“Part of report states that those businesses which are registered in Panama and the British Virgin Islands hold bank accounts and real estate worth more than USD30,000,000.”
“If you were to convert that against the dollar rate of about Ksh110, that would come to about Ksh3.3 billion,” Gituku stated.
Shollei had a different value, insisting that the properties were worth Ksh3 trillion.
“I don’t know if you have been given a brief to defend the Kenyatta’s on this, I’m saying things that I have read myself,” she interjected.
