The 8pm curfew time is possing a challenge to most Kenyans working within Nairobi CBD. Many of those working in the region have lamented of long queues and slow moving traffic while on transit after work.
According to some of the kenyans, the set curfew time does not allow them to travel in time back to their respective places. This has always made them to be found on the wrong side of the law for breaching the directives. Most of those using Thika Super Highway, Waiyaki Way and Mombasa road have grown fear of being caught up in the roadblocks erected by police.
Recently some citizens were forced to spend the night on Thika road after being denied access for further travel past 8pm. Drama was experienced leaving some few individuals injured at the incidence.
Kenyans now want the government to revisit its decision and restructure some of the directives installed in place. For instance, one Kenyan suggested that all citizens have the right to travel peacefully since they pay taxes.
Since the imposition of the 8pm curfew, most Kenyans in Nairobi CBD have been experiencing long ques to access vehicles. Scarcity of "matatus" has also been observed as a major problem during evening hours. Below are some reactions from Kenyans.
