President Uhuru Kenyatta Lifts Dusk to Dawn Curfew

The dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed to combat the spread of Covid-19 has been abolished by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The declaration was made by the Head of State during the Mashujaa Day celebrations at Wang'uru stadium in Kirinyaga County on Wednesday, October 20, 2021.

President Kenyatta declared, "I thus direct that the statewide dusk to dawn curfew, which has been in effect since 2020, be removed with immediate effect."

Since March 2020, a nationwide curfew has been in effect from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., with the goal of preventing the spread of coronavirus.

On Monday, October 18, 2021, President Kenyatta hinted at relaxing the statewide curfew.

“We'll take a look at it, I'm working on it, and you'll hear it very soon,” he said. “I don't want to speak too soon, but very soon,” he added.

"Government will carry out the third financial stimulus program on November 1, 2021, to accelerate the speed of our economic growth and sustain the gains we've already gained," President Kenyatta stated, referring to the country's economic progress.
