Kenyans online have thanked the president for listening to their plea as this will allow businesses to reopen.

Many Kenyans have also seen this directive by the head of state as useful since the people who were rendered jobless following the cessation of movement have been remembered.

Kenyans had expected the President to address grievances voiced out, that the recently imposed lockdown and closure of entertainment joints, and the restriction of movements had rendered many people jobless.

According to the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics, over 2 million Kenyans have lost their jobs in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.


Stakeholders in the Entertainment, Tourism, Education and Hospitality industry in Kenya had also called upon the president to lift the recently imposed partial lockdown in the five zoned counties.

Kenya is currently in a situation where all Kenyans should unite and have a common goal for the betterment of everyone's future.

The Covid-19 disease has had an effect in every sector and if a solution is not promptly found, Kenyans should expect more tough times ahead.

The ministry of health has more than once explained the essence of vaccination, wearing of face masks, washing of hands with enough water and a soap among other measures. This has really helped in maintaining the low level rates of infections across the country.
