The main issue yesterday was the violation of curfew, but a mistake which the police made was that they ended up blocking essential service providers like ambulances. After massive outcries, the motorists were let go late in the night.

Today, 18 April 2020, the police have once again blocked main highways in Nairobi, with Thika Highway being the main. This was from 9 p.m, one hour after the official curfew hours in the One Zoned Area, according to NTV.

Speaking to NTV, Kasarani OCPD Peter Mwanzu has sworn that those motorists who will be caught up by the curfew on the blockaded highways will have to spend the night onsite.

However, the inner lane of the Thika Highway has been designated for essential service providers, and all others with permits provided by the government.

It is important to note that depsite the government choosing to stick to their guns, the police blocks begun at 9 p.m, unlike yesterday when they started at 8 p.m.
