Murkomen's Tough Message To Uhuru After Lifting Cessation Of Movement

This year's Labour day celebrations were held at statehouse Nairobi and kenyans forced to follow the proceedings on live television as the government observed the covid protocols.

Just a few guests were invited including the COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli. In his speech, the president made a plea to kenyans to continue following the ministry of health guidelines so as to 'beat' the unforgiving virus.

He emphasized that as president his first duty was to protect the lives of the citizens even as he revised the contaiment measures. Among the things he touched were the resumption of in person congregational worship up to a third of the church capacity.

The president also announced the reopening of all learning institutions and the lifting of cessation of movement in and out of Nairobi, Machakos, Kiambu, Kajiado and Nakuru.

This however seemed to attract criticism from Elgeiyo Marakwet senator Murkomen who asserted that the president's move to relax the covid 19 rules was sponsored by referendum push.

"The lifting of cessation of movement and the relaxation of covid 19 rules is sponsored by BBI referendum and not your petitions," said Murkomen via tweeter.
