“For One Month Sikulala Kwangu,” Johnson Sakaja Recalls When Police and DCI Camped at His House

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja recounted a time in 2020 when he was forced to seek alternative lodging after tens of police officers and a DCI team camped out at his Nairobi residence.

Speaking on Wednesday night at Deputy President William Ruto’s Karen residence, where the DP hosted a group of Muslims for Iftar, Sakaja stated that a team from the criminal system was sent to him to force him to support the contentious third-basis revenue sharing formula.

“When the bill was introduced in the Senate, some of us opposed it, arguing that you could not entice me with money while other counties lost a portion of their budget. We added that moving forward as a group was the better option, and that no one would suffer as a result.”

“That time, Your Excellency I didn’t sleep at my house for a month, even on weekends, because the cops and DCI were there, but it was a win-win situation in the end “As the Muslims applauded, Sakaja said,

The formula proposed that the most populous counties receive more funds than those with fewer people, a move that was opposed by legislators from arid and semi-arid areas.

Sakaja, Kipchumba Murkomen of Elgeyo Marakwet, and Mutula Kilonzo Junior of Makueni were among a small group of Senators who championed a formula that ensured that none of the 47 counties lost money.
