Why Nairobi Residents Will be Arrested by Police if Found in Bars or Outside Beyond 8PM Today

Kenyans are in celebratory mood right now if reactions from a majority of social media users is anything to go by. Many social media users have positively welcomed the announcement by president Uhuru Kenyatta on the curfew and other COVID-19 containment measures during today's labour day celebrations in Nairobi.

The head of state lifted the 8PM to 4AM Curfew that had in place and aligned it to begin during the same time as the nationwide curfew. He also directed the reopening of restaurants and bars which he directed should close by 7PM.

However, as kenyans especially in Nairobi and other previously locked down counties celebrate, it is important to warn that amidst the rejoicing, police will still arrest all Nairobi residents and those from the other four counties if they are found out beyond 8PM.

Also, arrests will be made to all those found to be in bars today. This is because most of the president's restrictions like the ones mentioned above kick off immediately. The restrictions will only kick off from midnight. This means that the earliest time the bars will open is at 4AM tomorrow. 

On the other hand, the 10PM to 4AM curfew in Nairobi and other counties only begin 4AM tomorrow. Plan accordingly to avoid being found on the wrong side of the law.
