Kibera Law Courts in Nairobi on Monday released 57 people who were over the weekend arrested drinking at a club along Ngong Road’s Marsabit’s Plaza beyond the stipulated time on Community Service Order.

The 57 will for a whole week clean different places in the city including Marikiti and Muthurwa markets; Nairobi River and Globe Roundabout.

They are required to report to DCI headquarters everyday at 8:00 am to be assigned their duties for the day which they will perform up to 5 pm.

The 57 were on Saturday and Sunday caught partying past midnight at the posh in Marsabit Plaza.

The Nairobi Metropolitan Service through its Enforcement department was tasked by the court in overseeing the execution of the community service order.

Kilimani Police Boss Vitalis Otieno said that there will be no mercy for those caught on the wrong side of the law.

He said that they have direct orders from the court to re-arrest those who will not show up to complete their community service order.

Those caught flouting curfew and Covid-19 protocols will have to work for a week in the streets of Nairobi and major places where their cleaning services will come in handy.

On Monday, photos of the revellers caught flouting curfew sweeping Uhuru Park spread like bushfire.
