ZA section of “drunkard” Kenyans are blaming Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja for allegedly causing the ban on sale of alcohol for 30 days.
On July 18, the senator was arrested at around 2am at Ladies Lounge in Nairobi’s Kilimani area.
He was alleged to be intoxicated in company of his friends at the time of his arrest.
Notably, this was way into the 9pm-4am curfew hours thus he was flouting the Clvid-19 containment measure.
The senator was arraigned in court where he was orderd to pay a fine of Ksh15,000 or serve a 3-month sentencing in jail.
He parted with the former and was released.
This is because several Kenyans were flouting the Coronavirus control measures such as social distancing and breaking the curfew rule, not wearing face masks and above all, interacting freely while in the drinking dens illegally.
Uhuru warned that the police shall show no mercy to those that will break this new rule and the bar owners who will be found operating and circulating alcohol will be prosecuted and have their licenses revoked.
Kenyan “lovers of the bottle” have since been publishing hilarious tweets that point directly at Sakaja, blaming him for their temporarily revoked freedom.
Here are some of the reactions from just a few tweeps:
