The problem supposes that the circuit has been connected for a long time, so it is in steady state.
Connecting a capacitor to a voltage source, what drives current through the capacitor? If the voltage across the capacitor is equal to the voltage of the source, does current flow through the capacitor?

For both of Kirchhoff's laws it doesn't matter at all if you use a resistor, a capacitor or anything.
