President Uhuru Kenyatta might be planning to have Kenyans continue with the current routine, introduced on March 2020 when COVID-19 was first reported in the country. This is according to his latest statement during the 10th anniversary of KDF on Saturday, held in Kahawa Barracks.

Speaking during the anniversary, the Head of State jokingly hinted that country's dusk to dawn curfew might be extended after the current period elapses.

On 04th October, government extended dusk to dawn curfew by another 30 days. This means that during these hours, Kenyans are not allowed to move around but stay in their residences.

"Vile nmeona leo hapa Kahawa, inaonekana hii Curfew lazima iendelee. Watoro mumejaza hapa jameni..." said the president to the audience which was military.

The current curfew period will end on 04th November, meaning if today's speech of the president is to be taken seriously, Kenya need not to expect nationwide dusk to dawn to be withdrawn soon.

KDF have made big achievements in securing Kenya's border with her eastern neighbor— Somalia. After entering Somalia in 2011 under the command of the then CDF —Julius Karangi, KDF's success in weakening Al- shabaab militia who were threatening the security of this country.

In his speech, the head of state thanked the families of the KDF personnel for unwavering support they have provided to the troops. To those who have lost their loved ones in the battle, the head of state noted that their sacrifice was not in vain.

"I thank the families of the Defence forces for their unwavering support that they have given our troops to undertake their core mandate. To those that have lost dear ones... I assure you that their sacrifice was not in vain," said President Kenyatta during the anniversary.
