The Kenyan head of state President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered a number of protocols to control the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. While other measures have been somewhat eased, the 10 pm to 4 am curfew remain in place. It was renewed this month for a further 30 days in what the Health CS Mutahi Kagwe said an attempt to buy more time to control the pandemic.
Kenyans have called on the government to do away with the curfew, saying that it is hurting them economically. Among those affected are long-distance PSV operators. Only those in the essential workers category are allowed to move around at night beyond 10 pm. It remains to be seen whether the state will lift the curfew after the expiry of the 30 days.
