In a video doing rounds social media, passengers at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) are seen struggling with law enforcement officers to allow them in.
The passengers are heard shouting from the lobby while some manage to break the barriers and force themselves out.
They are protesting on the requirement to have them produce proof of accomodations at their final destination. A requirement that most countries demand to allow one to be granted entry.
This has caused mixed reaction from online users most of whom wondered why the passengers were causing chaos and yet most countries ask for the same.
Some agreed with the request for proof of accomodations because of security reasons. They claimed that this is how one of the Terrorists in the Dusit attack was revealed to have stayed in Ruaka for three months.
Others said that it is important especially this covid-19 times for easier contact tracing if need be.
