Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja presents himself at Kilimani Police Station
Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja on Monday morning presented himself at the Kilimani Police Station to record a statement for allegedly flouting Covid-19 regulations.
The Senator was accompanied by his Makueni counterpart Mutula Kilonzo Jnr and was later joined by Lawyer John Khaminwa .
The Senator was being sought by police to record a statement on claims of incitement and breaking curfew that led to his arrest at a Nairobi club on Friday night.
On Saturday morning, Sakaja was granted a police bond and asked to return later in the day for processing ahead of the arraignment but he failed to show up.
The police last evening planned a manhunt for Senator Johnson Sakaja after he failed to record the statement.
Nairobi police boss Philip Ndolo said the lawmaker, who lives metres from the station, had promised to present himself.
“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 said
Sakaja and three others were arrested on Friday night after they were found drinking alcohol at Ladies Lounge on Dennis Pritt Road at 1am.
