The medic was from duty at the time when the incident occurred despite belonging to a special group of critical service providers.
"The unfortunate incident in Keroka where a medic was assaulted by the police yesterday night should be investigated. Police should implement Covid-19 protocols cautiously. It's the same station where a taxi driver was blocked while taking a kid to hospital. The kid died later." Ben Momanyi.
