Police Impersonators Extort Money From One Nairobi Man For Not Wearing A Mask Properly

The man says that after his boss received the news that he was arrested for not properly wearing a mask at his workplace. 

The three men who were suspected to be civilians pretended to be police officers before harassing him. They threatened to lock him up at a police station. That is when he offered to pay the 'fine'.  

On returning to his work the following day, he was dismissed for not having followed the Covid-19 containment measures. He bitterly condemned the men who cost him his job and all the money he had saved.

His case has since caught the attention of Kenyans who had mixed feelings. Some criticized him for not wearing the mask properly as required by the Ministry of Health.
