Minutes are counting down to the 8pm curfew in the 5 disease infested counties that were locked down by President Uhuru Kenyatta in late March 2021. In Nairobi city county, the situation is dire.
Desperate Kenyans are still queuing at Matatu termini in the city centre with the curfew less than an hour away. With the city's chronic traffic problems, it may yet be another night of cat and mouse races between the police and Nairobians.
