Online Uproar as National Police Maintains That No Bar Should Operate Past 7pm

The National Police Service has caused an uproar online after maintaining that no bar should operate past 7pm despite the President lifting the dusk to dawn curfew.

Uhuru ended the curfew which was effected earlier last year today while presiding over this year's Mashujaa Day Celebrations held in Kirinyaga County. The president noted that the country has recorded a positivity rate below 5% over the past two weeks thus decided to lift the ban amid numerous calls from Kenyans and leaders.

Kenyans online celebrated the directive with majority vowing to spend the night in clubs and entertainment joints. However, their plan has been sabotaged by a statement by the National Police Service (NPS).

Through their Twitter handle, NPS maintained that the President only lifted the curfew and not any other COVID-19 measure. The service therefore affirmed that no bar should remain open past 7pm and the officers will be on the ground ensuring the protocol is observed.

The statement caused an uproar online, with Kenyans protesting the move, with majority worrying about how the police will interpret the directive. Others hilariously claimed that they will by alcohol and drink outside the bar untill 4am.
