Kenyans at mandatory quarantine facilities face hard times as Government stares at them. The majority says they don't have even a single coin for them to stay at the hotel.

The Pride Inn Lantana Hotel in Nairobi has withdrawn all services to 42 people who had been placed under mandatory quarantine at its facility.

Those in quarantine say they have not been given meals and have been locked out of their hotel rooms.

The conclusion to withdraw services was fostered by unpaid bills according to a letter written to the Ministry of Health Director-General Patrick Amoth by the Kenyans in quarantine.

The letter dated April 10 noted that the essential 14-day quarantine at the facility elapsed on April 6.

“We appeal to your office to consider paying the additional costs incurred beyond the initial 14 days. The undersigned guests have incurred great financial loss and will not be able to pay the hotel, Pride Inn Lantana as we look to be discharged soon,” part of the letter stated.

The latest chaos from the facility is because of a payment row after those in quarantine existed their cash only to be informed that their quarantine had been extended by another 14 days.

Dr Patrick Amoth had said some people in isolation centres had close contact with some of those who tested positive for the virus necessitating an extension of their quarantine.
