The Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) will supervise 57 people who flouted Covid-19 regulations as they do community service for a week.

The 57 had been held at the Kilimani Police station over the weekend. They were on Monday arraigned at the Kibera Law Courts and were released on a community service order.

The 57 are expected to report for the exercise at 8am to clean up Marikiti Market and Muthurwa Market, the Globe Roundabout and Nairobi River, and leave at 5pm.

NMS says those who skip the exercise will be re-arrested and arraigned in court where they will face stiffer penalties.

Kavingi @kavingi added, “If you guys would be this ruthless to cartels then we would have a surplus budget. Do you know of parking cartels where you are losing millions daily? Stop PR and make Nairobi great again.”

Wambui Babu @wambuibabu said, “This is laudable. Let minor offenses be punished in this fashion. Please also arrest those not masking and make them clean government clinics.”
