The Court of Appeal’s decision to invalidate the Traffic Breathalyser Rules 2011 commonly referred to as Alcoblow has been received with mixed reactions by Kenyans, with most who reacted on social media generally praising the court for the ruling.

On Friday, a three judge bench ruled that the law used to arrest drunk drivers was illegal in Kenya.





Moses Nyange wrote on Facebook: “Ilikuwa njia tu ya kujitajirisha juu hatujaona mabadiliko yoyote tangu alcoblow ianzishwe. The only difference we have seen is of officers getting richer and fatter by the night. I will continue drinking a little and driving home without a worry in the world.”

Katana nza wrote via snapchat: “The law was an infringement and an intrusion into my privacy. Shame on NTSA. Glad I won’t have to pay a bribe again.”

Jkarume says via twitter: Good riddance. There is no date to show that cases of road accidents have decreased due to the introductioon of Alcoblo. Ni mathii makiumaga!

Oketchoo wrote on Instagram: It is sad that accidents continue unabated but I must say these guys were bullies. I won’t miss them.

Judges GBM Kariuki, Fatuma Sichale and Festus Azangalala noted that the laws introduced by NTSA are inconsistent with the Traffic Act and should therefore be taken back to Parliament for review.

Baba sichale says: “We don’t want the law reviewed. We can take care of ourselves without the help of NTSA.”
