President Uhuru Kenyatta has sympathised with the people who fell victim to police brutality when the coronavirus curfew began on Friday, 27th March.
The President conceded that some of the law enforcers used excessive force to implement the dusk-to-dawn curfew.
Consequently, he has apologised on behalf of the police service to the victims.
“I apologise to all Kenyans for the excesses that happened during the implementation of the curfew,” he said.
President Kenyatta was speaking at State House, Nairobi, when he held a teleconference with two Kenyans who have successfully recovered from the coronavirus disease.
He continued to appeal to the public to join the government in the fight against Covid-19.
Collective responsibility would play a great role in overcoming the pandemic now hovering around the country.
“I assure you, if we work together and understand this problem needs all of us, we will overcome,” the President said, as he urged fellow Kenyans to follow all the safety measures.
He, however, said the government was preparing for the worst incase of a blow-up which scientific research was showing would happen this month.
Having explored almost all options, the government may be compelled to impose a lockdown to combat spread of Covid-19.
