    "What wrong have I done? I demand to know. You need to tell me what wrong I did before I get into this car. 

    "What do you want my child to eat on his own? All these people were involved in the riot and I do not see you asking them to board the police car," she posed.

    The clip showed the officers attempting to push her towards the car as she went further away and even sat down.

    At the end, the officers listened to her grievancies before leaving her.

    The woman was part of a group of protestors decrying hardship after the halt of mitumba imports, a trade that benefits thousands of traders countrywide.

    The government halted the importation of second-hand clothes as a precaution to aid in curbing the spread of the dreaded Covid-19 virus.

    The main source of mitumba imports have been the US, UK, and China that recorded high cases of the virus.

    Local manufacturers have encouraged the government to maintain the restriction noting that second-hand clothes had immensely affected local textile industry.
