Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has resigned as the Chairperson of Senate Adhoc Committee on Covid-19 Response after recording a statement at Kilimani Police Station for breaching health safety rules.
“I take responsibility for having flouted the Covid-19 rules. I was outside my home past 9 pm. It is regrettable but all of us make mistakes,” Sakaja said.
Senator Sakaja spoke at Kilimani police station accompanied by his Makueni counterpart Mutula Kilonzo Jr and his lawyer John Khaminwa.
Sakaja said that he was arrested and was neither charged nor booked upon his arrest but the police officers told him to leave. He said that he would appear in court on Tuesday, 21 July, to answer to charges of violating Covid-19 rules.
