Trading hours however have been restricted and bars will operate until 22:00pm. The announcement was made by president Uhuru Kenyatta as he addressed the nation on the government’s latest initiatives to tackle the spread of the pandemic
Kenyans who were eagerly waiting for the President’s announcement’s were rather amazed as he did not re-open schools saying pupils safety had to be guaranteed. President Uhuru has extended a night-time curfew for a further 60days but said it would start two hours later now lasting from 23:00pm to 04:00am.There has been a steady decline in Corona virus cases in the recent weeks with 53 new confirmed cases being recorded on Monday.
An order given by the ministry of education for teachers to report to work on Monday led some to believe that the school calendar was about to restart but it was not the case since president is concerned about the safety of the pupils given that Ministry of health is anticipating for a second wave of the virus.
