Wacha Curfew Iendelee - Uhuru Jokes At How Kenya's Population Has Grown Amid Covid-19 Measures

 President Uhuru Kenyatta broke his silence on the cusp of curfew, hinting that he could extend house arrest nationwide.

 Speaking on Saturday October 16 at Kahawa garrison on the 10th anniversary of Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) day, Uhuru jokingly said he could extend the curfew nationwide.

 “From what I saw here in Kahawa today, the national curfew should continue. There are so many children here. Let the curfew continue, ”said the president.

 Uhuru's statement comes after Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kichumba Murkomen challenged him to immediately lift the national curfew.

 Murkomen has called on the president to stop what he calls hypocrisy in the fight against Covid-19 and lift the curfew.

 He noted that it was not fair for President Uhuru to impose a curfew on ordinary Kenyans, but he (Uhuru) and other politicians are organizing political rallies across the country.

 According to Mukomen, the nighttime curfew benefits the political elite more than ordinary Kenyans.

 “The people who suffer are more than the people who benefit from the curfew. We urge President Uhuru Kenyatta to end the hypocrisy, ”Murkomen said.

 Adding: “There are gatherings everywhere today; Raila has a rally in Eldoretto; Raila and Uhuru organized a rally in Kibera; The vice president organizes a rally in Mombasa.

 He further told the head of state to "stop deceiving Kenyans" by saying that the coronavirus only spreads at night and not during the day. He therefore asked him to immediately lift the night curfew before October 20.
