Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has this morning presented himself at Kilimani Police Station.

Sakaja went to the police station accompanied by Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr and his advocate, John Khaminwa.

Sakaja had been arrested on Saturday morning at a club in Kilimani for flouting the Covid-19 safety guidelines.

Police ambushed him at Ladies’ Lounge on Dennis Prit road while drinking in the company of 10 other people. He was later released on a free bond and was to go back to the station and record his statement before being arraigned today (Monday, 20th July, 2020).

Police had started looking for him after he failed to record a statement. He had been given up to Sunday evening, but he did not show up.

According to Nairobi police boss Philip Ndolo, following his release on Saturday, Sakaja had promised to present himself to the police.

“He has not recorded the statement. I am sure he will be recording anytime. We don’t know his whereabouts. He said he would present himself to the police. We hope he will keep his word,” Ndolo was quoted by the media as saying.

He was arrested with three others and according to a police report, he became unruly after being ordered to leave the nightclub. He incited the others to stay put.

The officer on patrol called a senior officer, who spoke to the senator, in vain.

The senior officer, identified as Asambasa then called Kilimani Deputy OCPD Adan Hassan, who arrived with his team.

It is then that Sakaja allegedly became violent and dared them to handcuff him.

After being taken into custody, Sakaja is said to have threatened to have the officers at the station transferred within 24 hours.

He also declined to be released on free bond. After reports of his arrest went viral, he took to social media denying that he had not been arrested, and declaring that he would never be arrested.
