A section of Kenyans have expressed their joy after president Uhuru Kenyatta eased the Covid-19 protocols. The president made this announcement while giving his speech during the labour day celebrations at Statehouse.
The cessation of movement from the five counties that were named as disease infected has been lifted. Churches in the counties of Nairobi, Nakuru, Kiambu, Kajiado and Machakos have been reopened where they will be carrying a maximum capacity of 100 people. Restaurants will be operating until 7PM. Curfew time will be starting from 10 PM to 4 AM.
After this announcement, a section of Kenyans have gone ahead to give credit to the deputy president, William Ruto. This is because the second in command had hosted a section of artists at his Karen home a few days ago, where he made a promise to make sure that their grievances will be sought out.
Among the requests that was made by these artists was the reopening of entertainment joints where they make a living from. This request has been granted today by the president after he announced the reopening of bars.
Many of those who have hailed Ruto have acknowledged him as a promise keeper. There was uproar after the DP said that he would make sure that the government addresses the requests by the artists because some Kenyans doubted his influence in the cabinet due to his soar relationship with the president.
Below are some of the reactions by a section of Kenyans;
