Despite the sensitization campaigns and strict government directives, unscrupulous owners of entertainment spots are flouting the rules.
Among them is Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, whose Avery Lounge was the center of controversy on Friday after at least 200 people were arrested for violating social distancing rules and the 9pm to 4am curfew.
According to the locals, the Lounge usually operates with impunity as it continues to operate even after several other people were arrested a fortnight ago in the facility, including the area MCA.
The suspects are awaiting arraignment on Monday and are being held at Kayole and Ruai police stations. So far, 255 people have been arrested for flouting COVID-19 regulations in Nairobi.
Others have been nabbed at roadblocks. The Ministry of Health has already expressed concern over the misconduct of bars and restaurants in Nairobi.
