Police officers have vowed to continue enforcing curfew in the county. This is after hundreds of people were unable to reach their homes before the curfew time. The police had erected roadblocks at the Thika Superhighway that saw congestion out of the CBD.
Speaking to the KTN News, Kasarani OCDP Peter Mwanzo has said that the police will not have mercy with those who will be late to get home before the curfew time. He has added that those licensed as essential service providers will be allowed to move on using the middle lanes of the road while all the others will have to spend the night along the roads. "Wenye no essential service providers wataruhusiwa, Hao Wengine Watakao chelewa tutakaa nao hapa mpaka subuhi", Said the Kasarani OCPD.
There was public uproar yesterday after people with important issues to attend to were blocked on the roadblocks. Parents who were taking their sick child were also forces to wait until the road blocks were removed. The act by the police officers was highly condemned by the Kenyans. They have therefore urged the government to re-look into the curfew time among other covid related restrictions.
