Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has left many confused after claiming that he bought a high-end car and an apartment while at the university.
The former Secretary-General of The National Alliance (TNA) remarked that profits from a kinyozi (barbershop) and a laundry business made him acquire properties at a young age.
“Every day I would get at least Ksh5,000,” he said during an interview on Churchill Show.
When he was in his fourth year, Sakaja said he was able to buy a Mercedes Benz car and an apartment at Yaya Centre.
“I had always wanted to buy a Mercedes as my first car. I achieved that dream while in my fourth year at the university,” he said.
To some netizens, the story did not add up.
Some argued that savings of Ksh5,000 daily for four years would not have been enough to buy the things he acquired not so many years ago.
But there was another side. Sakaja was a student leader at the University of Nairobi and was able to interact with influential politicians in the Mwai Kibaki administration.
It is also alleged that veteran trade unionist Francis Atwoli had been mentoring Sakaja from an early age.
Now connect the dots and see where he might have got his money from.
