HAPPENING NOW: Police Enforce Curfew Orders Along Thika Road With Water Canons On Standby

As the curfew enforcement order in Nairobi enters that third day of road blockade, police along Thika highway are today armed with water canons just to ensure they contain those breaking the order and allowing only essential service workers.

The police have devised a way to ensure that they don't inconvenience essential service providers like was witnessed on Saturday. They have left one lane for the essential service providers to have their way home.

The police have maintained that they will not lose their stand on curfew enforcement order. They have sent a strong warning that anybody caught on the road past curfew hours should be prepared to spend the night by the roadside until dawn.

The move has sparked online uproar among the Kenyans on Twitter who are calling on a revolution and asking the president to open the country.

Interior CS Dr Fred Matiangi has in the past hinted that Kenyans in the zoned area might have to live with curfew until the end of May.

What is your take on this?
