Senator Sakaja wanted by Kenya Police



The senator was being sought to record a statement on claims of incitement and breaking curfew after his arrest in a Nairobi club late on Friday night.This after he was granted police bond on Saturday morning and asked to return later in the day for processing ahead of arraignment.

When Sakaja failed to show up at the Kilimani Police Station, police said they tried to call him, but his phone was switched off. Detectives visited his house along Dennis Pritt Road where they found his car parked and his mobile phone in the house.It appeared that he had been whisked away to safety.

Police camped at the senator’s house until late in the evening as they pursued other means of tracking Sakaja. Sources said when a top government official realized police were closing in on his home, he ordered them to stand down until today or tomorrow.The officers, however, insisted that the senator should go to the station and complete the process of his release.

Nairobi police boss Philip Ndolo said Sakaja was supposed to record a statement regarding the incident at Ladies’ Lounge in Kilimani..Another officer said Sakaja was likely to be charged.

Our efforts to get a comment from Sakaja on his arrest proved futile. We also wanted him to confirm whether he was the individual seen in a video that circulated widely on social media asking for his mobile phone in a police cell.

The senator was arrested at a bar after a confrontation with police who had been called following complaints that there were revellers inside the premises after curfew hours. Sakaja was also accused of inciting some of those present to defy police orders to leave the bar. He also allegedly threatened to have all police officers at Kilimani transferred within 24 hours.

He later denied being in custody. “Never been arrested. Won’t be. Show me an OB Number,” he tweeted.

Police said they got a tip-off that a bar was still operating at around 1.10am. Officers who responded to the call found Sakaja and 10 other people outside, drinking.The senator was advised to leave but he declined, prompting the police team leader to call her bosses who also failed to convince the lawmaker to depart, police and witnesses said.

Kilimani deputy commander Adan Hassan was dispatched to the bar where six people present left, leaving Sakaja and three others. The three, however, refused to give their names for processing, police said.

Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip and Saumu Mbuvi, daughter of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, have announced their separation following wrangles and disagreement.

The reports were fuelled by photos and videos of Senator Loitiptip hanging out with a female friend.

Saumu, on Instagram, announced that the two have separated, claiming that she has undergone domestic violence under Loitiptip.

“These are the things he did to me,” wrote Saumu, in one of her photos showing a swollen face and bruised lips.

“He almost killed me. I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you.”

She also claimed that the senator had neglected their child, leaving Saumu as the primary caregiver.

Loitiptip told that Saumu shared her father’s traits and was suffering from bipolar disorder, threatening to expose her past to prove his claim.

The two have been dating for months and at one point planned to get married. However, Sonko’s daughter clarified that the two had split before officiating their union.

Uhuru went on to disclose that he has no plans to rule after his term is over and his interest is in finishing the job that Kenyans elected him to do.
