More than forty (40) people were arrested on Tuesday evening enjoying their drinks behind closed doors at a popular drinking joint in Umoja estate, Kenya as the country is undergoing a national locked caused by coronavirus.
According to NairobiNews, the merry-makers had locked themselves inside a Tavern along to avoid attracting unwelcome attention.
The group, including men and women, were comfortably enjoying drinks when police stormed in and cut short their merrymaking.
Some of them, however, jumped through the windows and escaped.
The arrested persons will be subjected to mandatory quarantine at a government facility for 14 days.
The arrests came just hours after Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said he is aware of the cheekiness being exhibited by Kenyans to indulge themselves in drinking alcohol in the just reopened entertainment joints.
Kagwe said they have received information about the abuse by people in eateries and are not adhering to the rules and measures that individuals are supposed to observe to be able to enjoy services in such places.
â€śAnd it has indeed been abused, itâ€™s a fact that people have been going to pubs, or to eateries,â€ť Mr Kagwe stated.
