Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja Tuesday alleged that police are out to get him over his opposed stand on the House Finance Committee’s proposed revenue sharing formula.
Speaking on the floor of the Senate, Sakaja claimed that detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) trailed him on Friday while he was heading home.
“On Friday I was being trailed by DCI police officers KBZ 317W and I saw them and they left. I raised it with the Inspector General of Police and he did not respond,” Sakaja said.
He added that the officers were staking out his house in a plot to arrest him ahead of the seventh sitting on Tuesday.
“Yesterday (Monday) there were reports of my impending arrest so that I’m not here today (Tuesday)…I didn’t even stay at my own home, I was in the Senate buildings at 5.30am, I sat in my car in the basement until mid-day, that is not a laughing matter,” said the Nairobi Senator.
“The objective was for me not to come to the House, now that I have come and I have voted, those who want to come and arrest me, please go ahead,” he added.
While referencing the banners labeling him traitor, the Senator declared that he will not be intimated to change his stand on the revenue sharing formula.
“You have seen the vitriol, you have seen the banners against me out there for me to change my position, I am not one to be intimidated…I will not be intimidated. I stand for one Kenya.”
The Senate voted to adjourn the debate on the revenue sharing formula during their seventh sitting on the matter.
