President Uhuru extends dusk to dawn curfew for another 21 days
The dusk to dawn curfew that has been in place for close to two months now has been extended for another 21 days.
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday announced that the curfew will remain in place until June 6, 2020, to prevent the further spread of the killer Coronavirus.
“After receiving advice from the national emergency response committee, it is prudent to extend the dusk to dawn curfew for another 21 days until June 6, 2020, to prevent the spread of the killer disease,” Uhuru announced.
The president said the decision is aimed at preventing a total lockdown of the country which will greatly affect the country’s economy.
Uhuru urged Kenyans to work closely with the government and follow the laid down procedures and regulations to curb the further spread of the virus.
His sentiments came as Kenya recorded 49 new cases on Saturday, taking the total tally of confirmed cases in the country to 830.
