To curb movement in and out of the disease infected areas (Nairobi, Kajiado, Kiambu, Machakos and Nakuru), 33 roadblocks have been erected on all the major roads.

“These roadblocks will be manned day and night to ensure total compliance of non-movement into and out of the Zoned Area,” Inspector general of police Hillary Mutyambai said.

The IG said the National Police Service will conduct the operations jointly with National Government Administration Officers (NGAO), National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) and the Kenya Prisons Service.

The Commissioner-General of Prisons, Mutyambai said, has released more than 3000 officers to augment the NPS officers in ensuring that citizens go through this festive season in a secure and peaceful environment.
