Just hours after announcing the lifting of some of covid-19 containment measures in the country, President Uhuru Kenyatta has been warned against making any move to lockdown the nation in the near future.

In his address during Labor Day celebration at State House, the President lifted the travel restriction into and out of five "red zone" counties of Nairobi, Machakos, Nakuru, Kiambu and Kajiado.

While firing a warning shot at Kenyans, the President said that he will not hesitate to reintroduce the measures if the citizens will not adhere to the Ministry of Health Covid-19 containment protocols.

However, while hitting out at the President, Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa warned Uhuru against making any such move that will further compound the suffering of Kenyans.

" H.E while threatening to lock the country if another wave emerges, be advised that Kenyans are not to blame for any other wave but returning Kenyans and tourists whom you have always allowed in, are to blame, unataka Wakenya wafanye nini?" Barasa said in a Facebook post.

According to the firebrand legislator, reintroducing punitive Covid-19 containment measures is not good for the country, especially ordinary Kenyans, who are still battered as a result of the lockdown.
