Unlock The Country, Nduthi Guys Lead The Pack (Video)

Twitter has for this entire week been more than active with the hashtag #unlockthecountry with many Kenyans piling pressure on President Uhuru Kenyatta to unlock the country.

On Friday last week, President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered the cessation of all movement into and out of the capital Nairobi and four other counties following a surge in the number of Covid-19 cases.

The other affected counties include Kajiado, Machakos, Kiambu and Nakuru.

He suspended church gatherings in the affected counties too.

The president also ordered a revision of curfew hours for the five counties from 8pm-4am.

He also ordered the closure of schools and universities, with the exception of students undergoing examinations.

Bars and all liquor joints have also been shut down in the presidential directive that is set to take a toll on an industry that has been struggling to regain its footing since the start of the phased re-opening of the economy in July last year.

Kenya is grappling with a third wave of coronavirus infections with health facilities stretched to capacities as hospital admissions increase by 52 per cent in the past 12 days.

With several tweets supporting the hashtag, boda boda riders seem to have to decided to lead the pack with actions.
