SGR forced to stop at Voi station after passengers from Mombasa said there is no reason to reach Nairobi and be locked down. They went in a soft slow down that had to force sgr to stop even though it was express sgr train.
Many in the sgr couldn't believe the lockdown as it happened unexpectedly. They were worried why President Uhuru didn't give prior information so that they could prepare. The lockdown which has affected Nairobi, Machakos, Nakuru, Kiambu has realy affected many. Those who had booked prior may have their tickets refunded as the lockdown is stated as till further notice.
Those who are going back to Mombasa and its obvious due to high number they are going to pay high fare. But they said it's better than going and be locked at the capital. President Uhuru is requested to always announce prior so that many are not affected as it is seen today.
