Yester evening, Kenya confirmed 8 new coronavirus cases out of 1330 samples tested in last 24hrs rising the number of confirmed positive cases to 270.
Health Ministry also reported that of the cases, 4 are from Mombasa, 3 are from Nairobi, and 1 from Kajiado. The ministry similarly stated that it had recorded 2 new deaths & 7 new recoveries.
Dr Mercy Mwangangi also announced that going forward all those that break curfew will be quarantined for 14 days, at their own cost.
Kenyan Police have been blamed for helping the Chinese Virus spread while equally at the task of enforcing the law and order during the curfew hours.
If the police are not shooting innocent children from their home balconies, they are arresting those that are outside during curfew hours and locking them in cells—that have never been fumigated since they were first launched.
Here is the proof. Kenyan Bulletin has received this message highlighting how concerned Kenyan fears to have contracted COVID 19 in Thika Police cells.
“Hey Admin. I would like to highlight huge a problem at Thika police station. I was arrested over the weekend (sato) and taken to station for exceeding the curfew time while headed home. The place is a Covid death trap with so many inmates sharing a cell. At one instance after the so called “parade” I counted 32 of us in a single tiny cell! No masks, nothing. People squeezed to one another, not to mention the hygiene problem. I highly feel I might have been exposed to Covid there. Waiting for time to see if I will develop the signs but for now I feel something needs to be done. I hope you can help. I fear you quoting my name coz iko kwa OB. Hawa watu they can come after me”
Recently, International Media Al Jazeera exposed how Kenyan Police were not only reckless in handle the COVID 19 pandemic but also unleashed daytime Police brutality to already scared and sick citizens.
On Wednesday last week, Patrick Kimani, a man charged with robbery with violence at the Makadara Law Court claimed that the police are exposing him and other suspects to COVID-19 by locking more than 30 people together in a confined space.
Patrick Kimani told the Court that there were more than 30 suspects at Huruma Police Station and that it was impossible to maintain the one-metre social distance recommended by the World Health Organization.
On April 12 this year, Kimani was charged with robbing Jacob Omondi Okongo of his mobile phone worth Sh17,000, jointly with others at large, while armed with crude weapons in Huruma, Nairobi.
The suspect denied the charges before Senior Resident Magistrate Lewis Gatheru. He also accused the police of torturing him while in custody, which officers deny.
While he claimed he was injured during torture, the officer investigating the matter — Corporal Mwarabu — said Mr Kimani was hurt after jumping from the first floor of a building where he had led police officers to recover the phone from his accomplice.
Owing to Covid-19, prisons have set new rules that new inmates must be placed in quarantine for the recommended period and tested for the disease before they are admitted to the facilities.
The case will be mentioned on April 30. Hearing starts on July 13.
