As the dusk-to-dawn curfew enters its second week, Likoni constituents in Mombasa County have been warned that they must comply with the government’s coronavirus safety guidelines.
County Commissioner Robert Kitiyo said there was a need for greater awareness on what needs to be done to curb the spread of the deadly virus, now that several positive cases had been reported in the area.
“Some local residents still loiter outside during curfew hours. Obey the curfew to avoid running battle with the police,” he advised.
Kitiyo said his office was liaising with Kenya Ferry Services Management on how to enforce order at the Likoni Channel crossing.
“There is still a problem with observing social distancing but we will put our foot down and ensure that this observed to the letter.”
Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho pleaded with the people to obey the curfew to avoid fights with security officers.
“The curfew is not for the police but for our own safety. Be done with your daily activities before the curfew time and let order prevail.”
