Kenyans Stuck Between Adhering to Kagwe, Balala or NPS Over Closure Time for Bars After Curfew Lift

Kenyans have found themselves stuck between a hard place and a rock on what to follow after today's dusk to dawn curfew lift by president Uhuru Kenyatta during Mashujaa day celebrations in Wang'uru stadium, Kirinyaga county.

Although the president vacated the curfew which has been in place since March 2020,he never gave specific hours on when bars should close leaving citizens in suspense to conclude on their own.

However, health cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe and his counterpart in the tourism ministry Najib Balala who spoke locally after Uhuru's announcement today,gave Kenyans a go ahead stating hospitality facilities are free to resume operations past the 7:00pm closure time.

Cs Kagwe and Cs Balala stated that bars and restaurants are free to operate beyond the 7pm closure time,the National Police Service (NPS) has however released a contradicting statement.

According to their night tweet,the NPS says that the existing measures on closure of bars by 7pm remain in place and the enforcement of violation to this measure will continue.

“Following the vacation of the Covid associated curfew by H.E the President during Mashujaa Day speech,existing measures on closure of bars by 7pm remain in place for now.Enforcement of violation of this measure to continue,” the statement read.

This statement has left Kenyans who were happy that finally they would spend sometime in the bars at night wondering whose orders should they follow.
