Video: Travellers quarantined at KU protest detention

By Moses Michira | April 15th 2020

Travellers who have been quarantined at Kenyatta University since March 23 have staged a walkout to protest their extended detention.

The group of 21 which has been living in the Annex of KU Conference Centre were ordered to stay on after the latest test found two of their peers were Covid-19 positive.

A showdown with the authorities is expected on the act of defiance on the directive to extend their stay which they claim is unjustified.

Riot police have been deployed to stop them from leaving the facility even though they have already made their way to the institution’s gate bearing their packed personal effects.

Seven others from a different cohort and had been released last Saturday are still held at the facility over inability to settle accommodation fees worth Sh38,000 by then.
