More than 100 Kenyans were arrested in Nairobi for violating the curfew rules on Christmas day. The National Police Service had carried out surveillance in the country to make sure there is quick response to security.

Additionally, surveillance on traffic within different parts of the country was conducted to avoid traffic snarl up like in 2019 during the festivities.

However, the Nairobi-Nakuru highway had a snarl up of traffic as observed at the Gilgil weigh bridge. Cars and Motorists were caught up on the road as they tried to beat the traffic that was almost two kilometers long.

The police spokesman, Charles Owino, and the Coast Regional Commander Gabriel Musau reassured Kenyans of their security. Owino told Kenyans to ensure they are at their homes by 10pm.

In addition, Kenyans are called upon to observe Covid-19 protocols that are set by the Ministry of Health and WHO.

Area County Commissioner Henry Wafula has also called upon motorists to exercise caution while on the road.

Police brutality

Several people have reported to have been brutally beaten by police over curfew measures. Police have also ruined a few bars in Nairobi and Thika claiming that the bars were operating past curfew hours.

Recently, a group of police cut short an event in Nairobi and beat up one of Capital FM presenter. The lady has reported the matter to the police and said she is ready to face the police who beat her up in court.
