Tens of people were on Friday morning arrested at the Likoni ferry channel for flouting Covid-19 guidelines.

Kahawa Tungu understands that some of those arrested had masks in their pockets and others with masks only covering their chins in disregard of the Ministry of Health guidelines.

They were reportedly taken to a Mombasa Court where they will be charged.

This comes a day after Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai announced strict measures as the government attempts to flatten the Covid-19 curve.
