MOSES KURIA FINED KSH. 75 FOR VIOLATING COVIDD-19 RULES OF FAILLING TO WEAR MASK

A Kiambaa Court has released Gatundu South Legislator Moses Kuria, who was arrested alongside 30 others for violating Ministry of Health Covid-19 protocols.

However, the outspoken MP will either pay Ksh.75,000 in fine or serve eight months in prison.

Among the charges brought against the lawmaker are failure to wear a mask, breaking curfew hours, and unlawful assembly.

In a Facebook post on Monday, the lawmaker raised an accusatory finger at the state, but he did not explain the reason for his arrest. He did, however, share some photos of himself without a mask.

“Arrested! Held at Karuri Police Station. Kiambu Court tomorrow. Still- #MeneMeneTekel #FinishAndGo,” he captioned the photos.

After his arrest, the MP alongside other protocol-breakers were detained at Karuri police station from where they appeared before the court, albeit virtually, on Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, movement into and out of Nairobi, Kiambu, Nakuru, Machakos, and Kajiado has been prohibited as a one-zoned area in an effort to rein in cases during the third wave of COVID-19.

Gatherings are also forbidden, with restaurants and bars directed to only provide take-away services.

According to a statement released to the media on Monday by the Ministry of Health, 486 new infections had been realized in 2,989 samples.

The total number of confirmed positive cases in the country is now at 146153, with 1,564,827 samples tested so far.

The COVID-19 positivity rate is at 16.3 percent.
