Uasin Gishu Business community now wants President Uhuru Kenyatta to do away with the curfew.
Speaking to the press in Eldoret, they wondered why president Uhuru Kenyatta was allowing politicians to go on with their early campaigns yet denying them to continue with their businesses.
"As businessmen and women from Uasin Gishu we have suffered a lot since the curfew was imposed, some of us were doing our businesses for 24 hours but now we are limited making our businesses to run at losses," said John Wamwaki the chairman Uasin Gishu Hawkers Sacco while speaking to the press.
They said most of them have taken loans and with the ongoing curfew, it's hard to pay back their loans.
"Just the other you had a big meeting in Kirinyaga, Raila Odinga was in Meru while the deputy president was in the coastal region with a multitude of residents but common mwananchi is the one suffering with the curfew. Does coronavirus attack infect people only at night?" Ben Ngige wondered.
They said president Uhuru Kenyatta should now open up the country since the cases of coronavirus have dropped drastically.
"We want to call upon president Uhuru Kenyatta during his Mashujaa day speech to open up the country and Kenyans continue with their daily activities. What the government should ensure that all Kenyans are vaccinated as a country we have suffered a lot and enough is enough," said the chairman Uasin Gishu Hawkers Sacco.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to address the nation today during the Mashujaa day celebrations at Kirinyaga County.
