Female DJ, Pierra Makena has narrated how police in Meru County shutdown her Park and Chill event on Saturday, July 31 even after revelers had arrived, only to let the event continue after she had left.
According to the mother of one, this happened after she had acquired all required documentation and approvals from the county government, only to be told later by the police that there are COVID-19 fears.
DJ Pierra said she left the venue with her team and the police followed soon after her and she started receiving pictures of the event going on.
She switched cars and returned to the venue where the event was going on uninterrupted.
The DJ claimed that the police said the orders to shut down her event had come from Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi.
“Now this is just painful. My event was allowed to continue after i was thrown out with my sound? So is this really a covid fight? Authorities were sent to close my event. The only explanation they had was kuna covid. I asked if they know that i curated my event to fit the new normal and they said they have been told not to allow me that’s it..mkubwa amesema. Since i have no powers and no freedom in my own county let alone in my country..i set down and left
“Immediately I left the police cars and trucks well known as mariamu followed and left. …and all i was getting now was pictures of my event venue getting full. I changed my car and drove their…we parked and chilled..no one knew i was there. But sherehe ikaendelea. Guys in their cars only now my investment was going to the dogs. How else do you want me to be part of the solution???? Why are you doing this to me?? I was told orders came from @hon_kiraitu_murungi …..is that even true,” she wrote.
In another post she said;
“Who else is frustrated by kenya like me? This is 12pm today. Meru’s and my fans were ready. Even with all the regulations given they were ready to obey but make sure my home coming works… we got all approvals..we did everything right. Why would my own governor @hon_kiraitu_murungi say we be stopped. How have we broken any rule? We are out in the open. Guys were in their cars why would you send for us to be stopped? What have we done wrong? Why would we be treated like we have robbed a bank? We are trying to earn a genuine living!”
