SUMMARY

Restaurants, eateries and markets will also be closed as the Ministry urged residents to try as much as possible to stay indoors if possible.

There will be no public transportation but people can shop in selected outlets.

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Wednesday announced the cessation of movement in and out of Eastleigh effective today 7pm.

He also said it would be foolish to live with someone who has come from Eastleigh if they have not been tested.

The CS noted that Eastleigh is a hotspot and extreme caution should be employed at all times.

Restaurants, eateries and markets will also be closed as the Ministry urged residents to try as much as possible to stay indoors if possible.

There will be no public transportation but people can shop in selected outlets.

This comes just hours after Interior CS Fred Matiang’I warned all those who are disobeying the curfew that the government will use force in order to save lives.

Speaking at the Meteorological Department in Dagoretti, the CS noted that a section of Kenyans was frustrating efforts of the Ministry of Health by going about their business normally.

“We have been warned several times about our behavior especially in certain estates in Nairobi and Mombasa.

“We are going to be forced to do certain things that we did not want to do to secure the lives of our people,” he remarked.

Adding: “Some of us are very indisciplined. Look at what is happening in Old Town (Mombasa). We have restrained ourselves from applying force…the time has come for us to be very honest with each other and be firm.”
