Uhuru opts against lock down
President Uhuru Kenyatta addressed the nation on Covid-19 containment measures on Monday, reiterating the need for seriousness as the country’s infections spike.
The President did not impose a lock down of any kind as expected, announcing instead that the nationwide 9pm to 5am curfew had been extended by another 30 days.
He said such a measure will not benefit anybody and that the responsibility to contain the virus lies with individuals.
The spike in infections came after his July 6 address in which he eased measures including a cessation of movement into counties considered hotspots – Nairobi, Mandera and Mombasa.
The dilemma has been in the area of economic stability amid the pandemic, with many organisations downsizing and introducing pay cuts and business people taking huge losses due to the ban on public gatherings.
Eateries and restaurants have been reopened but learning has been suspended until 2021. Regarding the operations of eateries and restaurants, the President on Monday changed their closing time from 8pm to 7pm effective midnight.
