The Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader and former vice president Musalia Mudavadi has given the Interior and Coordination of National Government cabinet secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i a message to deliver to President Uhuru Kenyatta. Speaking on Sunday at the funeral of the late renowned lawyer Evans Monari in Nyamira, Mudavadi called on the CS to tell the head of state to lift the curfew.

"I would like to give a message to the Interior CS Matiang'i to take to his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta. He should convince Uhuru to lift the curfew. Let other protocols stay but do away with the curfew because many people are suffering, " the ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi said on Sunday.

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.
