Police consider using drones to arrest lockdown violators

No more using panya routes- Natembeya

Police roadblock

Rift Valley Regional Coordinator, George Natembeya has said that the police are considering introducing the use of drones to arrest Kenyans who are evading roadblocks.

This comes after police officers situated in the one-zoned areas, particularly, Nakuru and Kajiado, have tightened security over those who are using different routes to get in and out of these areas.

"We have realized there are people who have continued using panya routes to move in and out of the disease infected zone, some using boda-boda. We will tighten security at the roadblocks and use drones to arrest those evading the roadblocks," said Natembeya.

The drones are expected to monitor movement from a 5km distance.

Additionally, Natembeya urged Kenyans to take personal responsibility in observing the government sanctioned protocols in the containment of COVID-19.
