Mr Anthony Ndung’u (right) has been a driver for 10 years, transporting fresh produce across the country.

His daily routine involves picking produce and ferrying it to various parts of the country.

He can cover as many as 300 kilometres a day, usually alone.

Mr Ndung’u’s routine was violently disrupted by law enforcers on Friday.

He picked the fresh produce in the afternoon to deliver to a supermarket in Kakamega County.

It is a tough balancing act, for he must get to his destination on time. Failure means the produce will go bad.

Mr Ndung’u reached Gilgil around 7pm but decided to do the stretch to Nakuru, where he would spend the night before proceeding to Kakamega.

As he approached the first roundabout in Nakuru, two police officers stopped the vehicle, demanding to know why he was on the road when

there was a curfew.

“I showed them the delivery order papers. I also told them that I am among the essential services workers recognised by the government,” the father of two told the Sunday Nation yesterday.

The officers allowed Mr Ndung’u to proceed with his journey.

After a little while, however, he came across another group of officers at another roundabout.

“I gave them the same explanation and travel documents,”

Mr Ndung’u said.

“One of them threw the papers away as they ordered me to get back to the vehicle. Another hit me with a baton when I turned to get into the truck.”

Mr Ndung’u added that he was given “about six of the best” canes.

Yesterday, Ponty Pridd Holdings Ltd condemned the violence meted on its driver, promising to settle Mr Ndung’u’s medical bills.

“This was a delivery to a supermarket. Supermarkets are important in ensuring Kenyans get supplies during this difficult period,” Ponty Pridd MD Anthony Wainaina said.

Despite the treatment, Mr Wainaina said his company would continue keeping the supply chain working.

“In the same respect, we urge the government to be considerate with service providers during this difficult time,” Mr Wainaina said.

In the orders issued by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i is a list of 20 services considered as essential and thus exempted from the curfew.

Former TV presenter Faith Muturi and husband George Ngugi are expecting their third child.

The mother of two shared the news on social media revealing her pregnancy which is at an advanced stage.

The baby, she said, is a miracle baby due to the fact that after having their second child doctors had told her that chances of her getting another one was almost nil.

“Some of you know our story, that 3 doctors… Not one, not two, but 3 competent and credible doctors we respect, told us on different occasions that our chances of getting a baby were extremely low. BUT GOD🙌🏾 Here we are, 3rd miracle December baby. He did it again. 🙏🏾 Jesus, you do all things well. Be praised, forever and always 💜,” wrote Faith Muturi on Instagram.

She said their third born child is due anytime in December.

The couple got married in 2013 in a colourful ceremony which was attended by the who-is-who in the entertainment industry.

Machakos Senator Boniface Mutinda Kabaka is admitted at the Nairobi Hospital after he allegedly fell ill while with a woman at an apartment in Nairobi’s Kilimani estate.

The lawmaker is reported to have checked in at the apartment along Elgeyo Marakwet Road in Kilimani on Thursday afternoon accompanied by a woman identified as Esther Muli, a resident of Wote town.

According to a police report on the incident, the matter was reported by the Senator’s wife who said that at around 3am she was informed by an employee at the Senator’s office that her husband had been admitted in the ICU.

“She went to the said Hospital accompanied by other family members among them her co-wife where she established that the Senator was brought by paramedics after falling sick while in an apartment along Elgeyo Marakwet Road within Kilimani,” reads the police report.

Police visited the scene and found the woman who disclosed that she was with the Senator in the apartment when he suddenly started complaining of severe headache and asked her to look for paracetamols.

She added that the pain worsened and she reportedly informed the management who called for an ambulance and rushed the lawmaker to Nairobi Hospital.
