Governor Mike Sonko has  suspended all arrests by the Nairobi City County Government Inspectorate and Enforcement officers until further notice to avoid the spread of the coronavirus.

Sonko, in a statement  directed Acting County Secretary Justus Kathenge to facilitate the implementation of the directive with immediate effect.

“Futhermore, many suspects are held in county vehicles for long periods of time before arraignment, and that environment violates WHO guidelines on exposure to Covid-19,” said the governor.
