Police Stops a Planned Protest to State House

Yesterday, some Kenyans on Twitter ran a hashtag declaring that they would protest to the state house. This is because they wanted to pass their grievances to the president who had stopped the entertainment industry from functioning due to the measures put in place to curb covid-19.

They gathered at the Nairobi Central Business District ready to march to the state house, aiming at interrupting the ongoing labor day celebrations. However, their efforts were thwarted when police officers appeared in large numbers. The already gathered crowd was dispersed immediately, thwarting their plan.

The president however had received their outcry and in his speech today, he made the curfew hours to start from 10 pm and end and 4 am in the morning. He has also given a directive to open up bars all over the country. This has however come with conditions since the bars should remain closed as at 7pm. The cessation of ,movement in and out of Nairobi has also been lifted.
