Kenyans up in arms over police curfew enforcement exercise on Thika Road
Kenyans plying the Thika Road route were for the better part of Saturday night stranded on the way after police officers mounted a curfew enforcement roadblock.
The roadblock, according to sources Citizen Digital spoke to, was mounted a few minutes after 8pm in accordance with government directives on the curfew period.
Kenyans who were caught up in the roadblock, as evidenced by videos posted on social media, said police informed them that they would have to spend the night at those exact spots and that they would only leave at the lapse of the curfew at 4am.
The curfew enforcement exercise, however, did not happen on Thika Road alone as several sources said roadblocks were also mounted in different parts of Nairobi such as Lang’ata, Wilson Airport, and Kayole junction.
Below are a few reactions from a section of Kenyans on social media over the exercise:
