Angry Motorists Protest As Several Roads In Nairobi are Blocked By Police

Motorists using the Thika super highway to and from the central business district were on Saturday night from 9pm stranded, after the police put roadblocks on several locations.

The motorists who were plying different routes complained after the police stopped them from driving home because they were past the curfew hours. Motorists who had kids in their vehicles were not spared as well as ambulances that were ferrying sick patients who required immediate medical attention. Other roads that had roadblocks include Lang'ata road, Kangundo road, and Nothern bypass.

The dusk to dawn curfew that begins from 8pm to 4am was put in place as one of the measures to combat spread of the deadly corona virus. A number of Kenyans including Dj's, waiters in restaurants and many other sectors were forced to close down due to their usual odd operating hours. Kenyans are now calling on the President to adjust the curfew hours because it is hurting them economically.
