Beware of thugs posing as Covid-19 surveillance team, warn police
Yesterday, a man reported on social media that he found a car blocking his gate. "They claimed that they had followed the signal of a lady named Carole who had left quarantine and she had Covid-19. Luckily, our guard had talked to someone else in the compound who told him not to let them in and I said the same. They were not wearing any uniform and had no ID. Be careful everyone," he wrote. Police spokesman Charles Owino asked those affected to call police hotlines: 999, 112 and 911.

Owino said the police are working hard to contain crime. “We understand there are those incidents where some people are taking advantage of the situation to harass innocent Kenyans. We urge for cooperation,” he said. Gangs have also taken advantage of the curfew to attack residents. A Standard Group employee was attacked on Sunday at about 6.45pm on his way home from work at Komarock in Nairobi. He sustained a machete cut on his head, and a dislocation on his right hand. They stole his mobile phone and some cash. Another person is reported to have been attacked on Rhapta Road in Nairobi by a gang on motorbikes, robbing him of a phone and a laptop, at gunpoint.
