Speaking from the Statehouse, the president announced that the restaurants can resume operations. Further, the head of state also directed the operation for drinking sprees up to 7 pm.
Hotels will be allowed to operate until curfew time which has been pushed to the initial 10 pm from the current 8 pm. The president called upon all hoteliers to observe the set measures strictly.
At the same time, President Kenyatta directed all schools to reopen on May 10, 2021, without any interruption. Churches will at the same time be allowed to operate on a third capacity of the set capacity.
Health and Sports' Ministries are also set to draw regulations that will guide resumptions of the sporting activities. However, the president never hesitated to say that in case Kenyans don't behave, then they will not help but install measures to save lives.
"...if we are not able to contain the disease because of our selfishness, then we shall revert and protect life. We shall be forced to protect life and the economy...," stated Kenyatta urging that if Kenyans behave, then things will continue normally.
The president also lifted the ban on movement into and out of the five counties namely Kiambu, Nairobi, Machakos, Nakuru, and Kajiado.
Justifying his today's address, Kenyatta noted that infection rates had really dropped since the last measures announced on March 26, 2021.
