Major Boost to Bar and Restaurants Owners as Health CS Issues New Directives

Ministry of Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe.

Kenyans on Wednesday, were a little bit confused when the Police Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai ordered all bars and restaurants to close by 7PM and that the lifting of curfew had nothing to do the with opening of bars and restaurants as they had not received any communication from the needed source.

Majority of Kenyans anticipated that with Uhuru’s orders to lift the dusk to dawn curfew, they were free to party and drink all night long as it was the norm pre-covid-19.

The announcement by the IG led to massive counterreaction to Kenyans with majority complaining of the time lines by the government.

On Thursday, October 21, however, It has come as a sigh of relief to the bar and restaurant owners after the ministry of health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has now announced that Bars, restaurants and entertainment joints are free to carry out their duties and remain open up until 11PM.He has directed that they should close by 11pm or the time they have been certified to operate.

Mutahi while addressing journalists from Afya House, prompted bar owners to insure that the health protocols are all observed while their clients are being served.
