Nairobi County Senator Johnson Sakaja on Tuesday pleaded guilty of breaking curfew rules on July 18, when he was arrested at a Lounge in Kilimani.

He appeared before Chief Magistrate Roselyn Onganya at the Kasarani Covid-19 Makeshift Court.

Through his lawyer John Khaminwa, the senator said he was remorseful.

He will either pay a fine of Ksh 15,000 or spend three months in jail.

Senator Sakaja was found drinking alcohol, breaking the rules imposed to minimise the spread of the deadly virus. He spent Saturday night in police cell.

He was seized alongside three others shortly after 1 AM.

He was released on Saturday morning on a free bond. On Monday, Senator Sakaja resigned as the chairman of the Senate ad hoc committee on Covid-19.

Sakaja said on Monday: “I move around the city when I’m oversighting but I can say that on Friday I was not on official duty. I was on the wrong and I have resigned from the committee.”
