BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,20TH JULY 2020-Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has resigned from his position as the chairman of the Senate ad hoc committee on Covid 19, a day after he was arrested for flouting curfew guidelines.
The senator was arrested on Friday night at a pub along Dennis Pritt road in Nairobi where he was caught having drinks with friends.
Addressing journalists Monday after presenting himself at Kilimani DCI office to record a statement, the senator admitted that he made a mistake for which he said he had decided to resign from his position in the committee.
Mr Sakaja said he takes full responsibility for his actions including presenting himself in court Tuesday to face appropriate charges.
“I apologise to Kenyans and accept full responsibility for my actions and I will present myself in court tomorrow (Tuesday). I have asked to be shown what I will be charged with; they are saying it is violation of curfew orders and I am saying that it is true. I am not trying to make an excuse,” Mr Sakaja said.
