The estates were named as:
- Buru Buru estate
- Notorious Kilimani esate
- Ruai estates
- Kayole estates
- Embakasi estates
- Ruaka estate
The CS further revealed that close contacts traced from the latest confirmed positive Covid19 infections have clustered in these troublesome estates.
We are going to turn up the heat because from the reporting of the positive cases, you can tell the clustered estates which are now giving us problems and estates which are likely to become hotspots in the coming days..”
“And all of them have one characteristic, recklessness and disobedience to the guidelines being given by the Ministry of Health,” Matiangi stated.
The CS added that police on patrol in these areas will be in civilian clothing,He also encouraged neighbours to report persons operating illegal joints during curfew hours.
