"There is no room for impunity even during this time when all systems are geared towards dealing with corona pandemic," he added.

The police officer was held back by other citizens who intervened and cautioned him against pointing his fire arm recklessly.

President Kenyatta apologised to victims and Kenyans in general for the police brutality witnessed at the beginning of the ongoing dusk-to-dawn curfew.

The police were on the spot for the death 13-year-old Yassin Moyo, who was allegedly hit by a stray bullet in Kiamaiko, Mathare.
