  1. The wide variety of individuals tell me the police is finally doing their job. Kudos to the man and women in uniform.
    I wish the government installs special covid wardens like they did with litter wardens and gives them powers to give fines and perhaps arrests as well. We need to start taking this thing serious and not wait till it gets out of control.
    A few bad apples should not spoil the whole bunch. Lets weed them out before they do.

    • From the Sideline i agree with you to some extent. I see a know accountant from Hodges Bay that was arrested. Anyway, you must realize that there were other well connected people like the PM’s son and friends who were also seen breaking covid protocols. Hope the police keeps it up and apply the law equally to all.
