Kenya is among the countries in the world that has been greatly affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic. It has disturbed all the activities in the country starting from trading activities, educational activities to transport activities. Apart from this, Covid 19 has lead to a massive loss of lives in the country.
Now, as a means of fighting the spread of this pandemic, the goverment of Kenya through the ministry of health have been introducing new directives meant at curbing the spread of this virus. Among these directives is the curfew which was recently introduced by president Uhuru Kenyatta.
Now, there have been some allegations that political leaders in the country are exempted from this curfew. This is because they have been holding political meetings opposite to what the Ministry of health said. Now, today, the inspector general of Police, Mr Hillary Mutyambai has finally come out to name the people to be exempted from curfew rules.
Through his Twitter page, Mutyambai said that the essential service providers are the only people to be exempted from curfew rules. He was responding to claims that Politicians are exempted from these rules.
"This is NOT true, the only people exempted from the strict curfew hours are essential service providers. Flattening the Covid-19 curve is a collective responsibility. #EngageTheIG" said Mutyambai.
