President Uhuru Kenyatta recently imposed tough measures to curtail further spead of covid-19 in the country. Kenya is currently experiencing its third wave of corona virus which is regarded as the most infectious of all the waves the country has experienced.
Among the impositions,the president ordered that Five counties which include Nairobi County,kajiado county,Nakuru county,Machakos county and Kiambu county be put into lockdown. He further ordered that movement into and out of the five counties be stopped with exception to specially allowed groups of people.
Further lockdown measures he imposed on these five counties that he viewed as covid-19 infection hot-spots included the ban of sale of alcohol, restaurants strictly offer take away services and ordered that a curfew be put in place curtailing movement as from 8:00pm to 4:00 a.m.
Many people from these counties have decried the hardships they are facing due to the stringent lockdown terms pleading with the president to life the restrictions something President Uhuru has said he can only do if the covid-19 infection curve has flattened.
All indications show that the president instead of lifting the lockdown terms may only extend the lockdown measures nationally. This is because the disease continues to surge in other counties that are outside the lockdown zones. This is worrying and the president in order to stop the spread of the disease he may order national lockdown to the detriment of wananchi.
Please Kenyans,let's adhere to the ministry of health protocols on preventing,controling and managing the spread of covid-19.Let us wear face masks in public,wash our hands regularly and maintain social distancing in order to flatten the covid-19 infections curve so that we can go back to our normal lives.
