Thousands of commuters stranded as curfew takes effect – PHOTOS

Hundreds of passengers were left stuck in Nairobi when the government’s 7 pm — 5 am curfew took effect on Friday night.

Many of the matatu termini in the city center were on-site and a few public service vehicles (PSVs) lined and travelers.

The few matatus eligible grabbed the chance to cash in by raising the fare even as many flouted the recent guideline reducing the number of passengers they should be transporting to encourage social distancing to curb coronavirus spread.

Police inspector general Hillary Mutyambai advised on Friday that anyone living outside their residences would be dealt with according to law during the stipulated 7pm-5am curfew time.

Mutyambai spoke at a press conference conducted on Friday evening at Afya House where it was reported that there were no new positive cases of coronavirus in Kenya.

The IG has stated that only those listed on the registry of critical services would be permitted to travel during curfew, noting, however, those valid identifications would need them.
