President Uhuru Kenyatta is a man faced with very tough decisions to make in the coming days ahead. Kenyans from all corners of the country have been piling pressure on the government to ease lockdown and possibly to lift the dusk to dawn curfew
Empty streets is always the new norm every evening as Kenyans rush to beat the curfew hours stipulated by the government, most of them forced to spend the cold night away from home when they brush shoulders with law enforcers
The situation in Nairobi, the capital city is always more dire since the city is so much populated. This means the public transportation system is not able to cope with the numbers of passengers who ply different routes.
In the recent past there has been outrage after some secondary school students were left with no choice but to spend the cold night at Uhuru park due to lack of transportation
This is just a tip of the iceberg. Many people have lost their sources of income due to suspension of different economic sectors such as tourism , the hotel industry, bars and restaurants among other jobs that depend on social gatherings. Even music artists have not been spared because they cannot hold concerts in the middle of the pandemic
It is still unclear what the President is going to say in his next address but information from the ministry of health tend to suggest that the virus is still spreading day by day
The President seems to be in a very tight situation at this moment. He has to balance between containing the disease and also thinking about how the economy will be revived. Will he succumb to pressure and lift the curfew or will he stand his ground
So many people are eager to hear the next address to the nation regarding this pandemic. Will the curfew be lifted any time soon?
