High Court Judge James Makau has listened to Kenyans concerns over Coronavirus threat. Makau has suspended China flights to Kenya and on top has given Interior CS Fred Matiang’i an uphill task.

The judge has ordered Matiang’i to look for all the 239 Chinese who landed in Kenya on Wednesday and quarantine them at Kenya Defence Forces barracks.

The Chinese got into Kenya without proper screening of the killer virus. A Kenya Airways employee filmed their arrival and shared the clip on social media. She has since been suspended but Kenyans term him a hero.

The said Chinese are hiding in some city suburbs but the CS has to mobilise a hunt for them and put them in barracks, away from vulnerable wananchi.

Two doctors; Joseph Mwendwa Mzalendo and Cyprian Mwirabua petitioned the court to bar China flights into the country.
