Speaking during a state of the nation briefing on Thursday, April 1st, President Uhuru Kenyatta has hinted at the possibility of unlocking the country again. According to the president, he is likely going to remove the containment measures as soon the coronavirus infection curve flattens. Remember he announced these containment measures without giving the exact dates of their removal. All he was heard saying was "... Until further notice."
Uhuru Kenyatta: "The measures I have imposed are not my own, these are measures brought to us by our scientists and the doctors. If we had to go by their extreme measures, we would have locked down the country. And as to when these measures will be removed and we can go back to normal, which is our prayer every single day, depends on how we can flatten this curve…”
This comes as a section of Kenyans led by religious leaders, activists and social groups are putting pressure on the president to unlock the country. Some even held protests in the streets of Nairobi on the same. Uhuru has however urged Kenyans to adhere to the safety precautions put in place by the ministry of health to help flatten the infection curve as soon as possible.
