Mutahi Ngunyi Advises Senator Sakaja to ‘Wake Up’ After He Opposed Revenue Bill

Controversial political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has advised Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja to watch out or risk ending his career prematurely.

In a short statement on social media, Ngunyi claimed that Sakaja was sinking his political ship and could soon be forgotten.

“To MY YOUNG friend Sakaja: “…The ONLY time you START from the TOP is when you are DIGGING a HOLE’. Be SUSPICIOUS always, when you are at the TOP!” he warned.

The opinionated observer cautioned that the first-term lawmaker was not reading the signs of the time, which could deal him a major blow in the next election.

This comes days after the Nairobi Senator joined others to oppose a government-sponsored Bill in the Senate.

The Bill, which proposes a new revenue-sharing formula among counties, had Nairobi as one of the major beneficiaries.

However, Sakaja disagreed with the formula, saying that it would hurt some counties.

At least 18 of the 47 devolved units majorly from the coast, eastern and northeastern regions would have lost part of their current allocations.

“Let’s use the existing formula and in future we can make adjustments where necessary,” Sakaja said.

Senators shocked the Executive by shooting down the Bill even after successfully seeking the support of ODM leader Raila Odinga and Wiper Party’s Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka.

Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kang’ata told Citizen TV that the Jubilee members who went against the party’s position would face disciplinary action.
