Today is a very special day in the history of Kenya. It is a day meant to honour those who fought to ensure that we are where we are today as a nation. This year's Heroes day is being held at Wang'uru stadium in Kirinyaga County. The head of state his Excellency Honorable Uhuru Kenyatta is expected any time from now to officiate the occasion.
However, since the issue of covid-19 popped up into the country things have never been the same. Citizens are crying due to high cost of living that continue to rise day by day. In order to reduce the rate of infection of this deadly disease, President Uhuru issued a dusk to dawn curfew that has been in since 2019.
Kenyans are now requesting President Uhuru to come up with other measures of controlling this pandemic other than the issue of curfew. They are expecting his Excellency the President to uplift curfew today.
In my own opinion, I think that it is high time to fully open up the economy. According to world health organisation the recommended positivity rate should 5% and below inorder for the country to open fully. And according to the ministry of health, the country's positivity rate is below 5% now. Due to this reason, I think President Uhuru will have no option rather than to remove dusk to Dawn curfew.
Check country's positivity rate in the last two days.
