"Wacha Unafiki;Senator Murkomen Tells Uhuru On Curfew

Murkomen pointed out that it is not right for President Uhuru to order ordinary citizens to stay out of the country except for him (Uhuru) and other politicians holding political rallies across the country.

On October 15, 2021, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi also called on the national leader to abolish the curfew,Senator Elgeyo Marakwet Kichumba Murkomen demanded that President Uhuru Kenyatta immediately lift the embargo on the nation.

"Stop Hypocrisy" Senator Murkomen said Kenyans are hurting the most and called on the President to put an end to hypocrisy in the Covid-19 war and eradicate it, People Daily reported. He pointed out that it is not right for President Uhuru to order ordinary citizens to leave unless he (Uhuru) and other politicians holding political rallies across the country.

According to Mukomen, the curfew benefits politicians more than ordinary Kenyans. "The people who are suffering are more than the people who benefit from the curfew. We urge President Uhuru Kenyatta to stop hypocrisy," Murkomen said. "There are meetings all over today; Raila has a meeting in Eldoret; Raila and Uhuru had a meeting in Kibera; the Deputy President has a meeting in Mombasa," he added.

He told the national leader to stop fooling Kenyans that the corona virus spreads only at night and not during the day. Therefore, he urged Uhuru to immediately withdraw the curfew the night before October 20. Murkomen's statement came just two weeks after the government extended the 30-day curfew.

The Ministry of Health on October 4, 2021, found that the nation still has not reached a positive 5% level according to the World Health Organization for two consecutive weeks before considering concessions. Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe also noted that the 30-day extension of the curfew would give the government more time to vaccinate as many Kenyans as possible.

On Friday, October 15, 2021, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi also called on the national leader to step down. Mudavadi said Kenyans cannot continue to carry the economic burden that is becoming more and more with each passing day. He said the curfew has caused suffering to citizens who are already experiencing difficult living conditions. "It is clear that the current crisis and economic downturn continues to hurt several sectors in the country. Transport industry, small business sector among others. The time has come to eradicate the curfew now, "Mudavadi said.
