Shortly after President Uhuru Kenyatta lifting the dusk to dawn curfew that was previously in place to curb the spread of Covid-19, Police have come out to clarify on the rules that will govern the reopening clubs and bars. The police spokesperson, Bruno Shioso gave the timings within which the facilities will be operating.

In the statement, bars and clubs were ordered to revert to pre-curfew operational hours. Before the implementation of the curfew rules, the bars were operating between 5pm and 11pm on weekdays and between 2pm and 11pm on weekends. These, the spokesperson said will be retained.

However, he added that the clarification was made based on his interpretation of The President's speech today and that he will seek further guidance and direction on the same.

Kenyans filled social media with messages of relief after President Uhuru Kenyatta removed the national night curfew that has been in place since early last year.

The president ordered that the curfew that was placed in March last year following the outbreak of the COVID 19 epidemic be removed immediately starting Wednesday night.

For more than 18 months Kenyans have been forced to stay indoors before 10pm and allowed to leave just after 4am following a stay-at-home order.
