Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala was on Monday arrested by the police after he said he will not be intimidated to change his stand on the third generation revenue sharing Bill, even as DCI officers continue camping outside his Kitengela home seeking to arrest him.
Senator Malala, who addressed journalists from the window of his house on Monday, said State machinery is being used to make him bow and change his stand on revenue sharing.
While speaking on Sunday evening in Mumias town, Mr Malala asked the State to stop using the police to intimidate senators who are opposed to the third-basis revenue sharing formula.
He is among senators who are opposed to the formula fronted by the Commission on Revenue Allocation that seeks to promote balanced development, encourage counties to raise their own funds and prudently use public resources.
On Friday, Mr Malala’s accounts and those of his Meru counterpart Mithika Linturi were frozen under unclear circumstances but were later reported to have been opened after the senator went to Kenya Revenue Authority’s offices to seek explanations over the issue.
On Sunday evening as he distributed relief food to residents of Mumias, the senator claimed that a group of people were moving around intimidating and pressurising senators to vote in a specific way.
“But I maintain that I will not be intimidated by anybody in any way. Hata mkinitumia polisi, mimi kura yangu kwa Seneti inabaki ile ile (Even if you send police to arrest me, my vote in the Senate remains the same),” said Mr Malala.
The Kakamega senator, who is championing for a win-win formula and a win-win situation for all the counties, asked those behind the intimidation to respect the rule of law and give the legislators their right to make the right decisions.
