The Senator claimed that he was trailed for the better part of Friday afternoon and asked Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai to advise his officers.
â€œMutyambai kindly advice your 6 officers whoâ€™ve been trailing me all afternoon in a white Isuzu… to have some more tact.
â€œIf they want a presentation on the formula that unites Kenya, give them my number. Iâ€™m available. They sped off when I blew their cover,â€ noted Sakaja.
It is not clear why Sakaja was being trailed but according to his tweet, the Senator hinted at issues of the Senate Standoff on revenue allocation.
Our efforts to reach him at the time of publishing the article proved futile as his number was off, while Police Spokesman Charles Owino did not respond to calls.
The Senator was trending on Friday, July 31 under the ShameonSAKAJA hashtag with a number of people slamming him for failing to vote for the Revenue Allocation bill in the Senate.
The hashtag also called him out after he was arrested on Saturday, July 18 at a Kilimani bar for flouting the government’s curfew orders.
After appearing before the Kasarani open court on Tuesday, July 21 the senator was fined Ksh.15,000.
On Thursday, July 24 Sakaja filed an alternative formula for allocation of revenue to counties, after the Senate failed to pass a resolution.
In his proposal, the Senator explained that it had two components whereby the counties would each get the Sh316.5 billion allocated in the Division of Revenue.
The equitable share would then form a baseline for further additional allocation during the three years that revenue generation formula would be in place.
