One of the rules was the end of cessation movement In and out zoned areas that included Nairobi, Nakuru, Machakos, Kiambu and Kajiado.

According to a video shared by Kenyans News Website, the residents of red zoned areas stated fleeing the regions while making trips to other counties immediately after the announcement was made by the Head of State.

The restrictions were also lifted without proper guidelines and how they could be implemented. In March 2020 the process of relaxing coronavirus rules was done in stages which made the country to be able to fight the surge in Infections.

However, this time there was a blanket relaxation of the rules without proper guidelines from the Ministry of Health, Education and other stakeholders.
