Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja was on Saturday, July 18 morning arrested for violating curfew rules placed to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
Sakaja, who was arrested alongside three others, was allegedly drinking at around 1 am at Ladies Lounge in Kilimani.
According to police, they received information that the bar located along Dennis Pritt Road was still operating past the curfew hours.
At least 10 people including the senator were found in the bar, but others escaped.
Sakaja is said to have defied the police officers’ orders to leave the premise, prompting them to call their seniors.
The senator, however, has refuted that he was arrested. In a tweet, Sakaja insists that he has never been arrested and that he will not be arrested any time soon.
