Road blocks have again been mounted along various points on Thika Superhighway as police look to enforce the curfew orders put in place. Earlier in the day, Kenyans could be seen hurrying along the busy Nairobi highway to avoid the curfew hours.
Police are ensuring that the 8PM curfew that was a directive from the president Uhuru Kenyatta, is implemented to the fullest extent. Police even have those trucks that are used in demonstrations parked along the highway just in case a riot breaks out.
Earlier on, people were seen stranded in town with no PSVs to take them home just a few minutes before the curfew took effect. It is unclear if these Kenyans got home on time, but it is highly unlikely that they were able to get home on time.
Kenyans have been urged to get home on time to avoid this unnecessary run ins with the law. It is important to maintain these rules so that the country can go back to normalcy. Today, only 241 people tested positive countrywide so this might be a sigh that the rules are working.
