Speculations are now rife as President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to drop another major announcement days after he introduced tough and Covid-19 measures that have caused uproar and unrest from millions of kenyans who are suffering in abject poverty and agony.
According to the news presented by NTV, the head of state is expected to deliver his address to the nation starting at 11:30 am which means 1:30 pm as per the statehouse time.
While it remains unclear on what the head of state is about to tell Kenyans days after locking counties of Kiambu, Machakos, Kajiando and Nakuru, and Nairobi, anticipation is now rife that Uhuru might deliver good news to Kenyan, such as ways of cushioning the vulnerable through the provision of cash stimulus programs such as Kazi Mtaani and Inua Jamii.
Uhuru has also continued to receive pressure from various lobby groups, religious groups, political leaders from various regions to review last week's Covid-19 announcement in regards to economic development and growth.
Last year when President Uhuru Kenyatta introduced the cessation of movement in counties such as Nairobi and Mombasa, in the next week he addressed the nation again where he disbursed cash that would uplift and protect millions of vulnerable Kenyans alongside those who had lost jobs from being overpowered by the economic crisis. Every family received kshs 2000 after every 2 weeks and in regards to youths, the Kazi Mtaani program was introduced in every 47 counties.
What are your expectations as Uhuru addressed the nation?
