Sakaja Reiterates Interest In Vying For Nairobi Governor’s Seat


Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja has reiterated his interest in vying for the Governorship of Nairobi County citing his exemplary track record.

Sakaja says that his service to Nairobi County as a Senator has made him understand the needs of Nairobians hence being in a better position to serve them as a governor.

“The political dynamics at that point did not change, that is why I switched to senator. That didn’t change my dreams towards being senator, that didn’t change my vision for a working capital,” said Sakaja.

“I want to serve Nairobians with a proper vision within the next 10 years,” he says.

Sakaja has cited some of the bills he has sponsored in parliament that have improved service delivery and also shored up the revenue allocation for Nairobi County.


Apart from oversight, Sakaja says that he has also participated and directly addressed issues that have affected Nairobians like grabbing of schools and addressing water issues.

“In terms of oversight, in and out of the city including taking the county government to court when they were trying to deal with matatus in a haphazard way,” he said.

Sakaja has so far sponsored several bills in parliament since his election to the senate.

The bills include, The National Employment Authority, The Public Procurement Act Amendment, The Startup Bill, The Disaster Risk Management Bill and the Formula that went into County Revenue Allocation popularly known as Sakaja Formula.

In 2017 Sakaja shelved his dreams of vying for the governor’s seat and instead opted for the senate seat.
