Phased reopening in Kenya
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced a phased reopening of the country, with the resumption of international flights from August 1 as well as the lifting of internal travel restrictions.
The move on Monday came as pressure mounts to kick-start the country’s ailing economy after four months of corona virus restrictions which have devastated key industries such as tourism.
Kenyatta said in a televised address that international air travel into and out of the territory of Kenya shall resume from August 1, while domestic flights are scheduled to restart on July 15.
He also announced the lifting of a ban of movement in and out of the capital, Nairobi, the port city of Mombasa and northeastern Mandera.
“Today I order and direct that the cessation of movement into and out of the Nairobi metropolitan area, Mombasa county and Mandera county that is currently enforced shall lapse today or at 4am (01:00 GMT) tomorrow, Tuesday, the 7th of July 2020,” said Kenyatta.
He, however, extended the current nationwide curfew between 9pm and 4am for a further 30 days and warned he would not hesitate to “revert to lockdown” if the situation worsened.
