Good morning Kenyans.
We are in the last week of the month of July which has had a lot of downs than ups.
Speaking of a lot of downs, President Uhuru Kenyatta during his long-awaited speech on the current Covid-19 situation, delivered a painful blow to all alcohol lovers.
Uhuru announced that all eateries and restaurants were banned from selling alcohol.
The decision didn’t go down well with Kenyans as many were quick to blame one person for the misfortune.
The angry lot blamed Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja after his recent drama.
Sakaja had been a subject of discussion when he was arrested for flaunting Coronavirus restrictions.
The youthful leader had instead made things worse when he first denied the claims despite a video of him indicating otherwise.
A section of Kenyans online have vowed that the Jubilee party member will pay for his shortcomings.
This brings up two big questions, is it fair to blame Sakaja alone or should all politicians be held responsible for their reckless behaviour of disregarding Covid-19 rules?

ODM Senators to Reject Raila’s Directive in Senate Showdown
Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga is set to face rebellion when the Senate meets to discuss the revenue sharing formula for counties on Tuesday, July 28.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has received the backing of ODM chief Raila Odinga for a new county revenue-sharing formula after a stalemate that had threatened the handshake.
Police in Bomet are holding a man who killed his wife’s lover on Sunday at Kapwen trading centre in Chepalungu Sub-County.
ODM leader Raila Odinga finally broke his silence on the ongoing standoff over the County Revenue Allocations Formular.
Raila remarked that the Senators should adopt the bill in its current state for the sake of the country during this trying time.
The former Prime Minister noted that the current wrangles in the Senate were heading the ethnic route which would be costly to the nation.
This leaves one wondering, should the leaders hold off till their demands are met or should they compromise and fall in line?
