Just in: CS Kagwe Set to Address The Press, More Details Revealed

Despite delivering an order to lift the dusk-to-dawn curfew during his Mashujaa Day address, President Uhuru Kenyatta did not provide details on other limitations, such as bar closures.

This has left Kenyans confused as to whether they should still be out of bars by 7 p.m., as they were before, or if the entertainment venues can now offer their services overnight.

The problem has been made worse by contradictory statements released by the Ministry of Tourism and the National Police Service, the two government agencies at the core of the subject matter.

And now as per the reports, Mutahi Kagwe,the Health Cabinet Secretary is set to address the nation today afternoon,to give more insights on the bar time closures.

Najib Balala, the Tourism Cabinet Secretary, reportedly told The Star on Wednesday evening that the curfew lift effectively means the restriction on bars and restaurants has been lifted as well.

“With Ministry of Health Protocols, all hospitality facilities are back to normal,” he said.

According to the publication, Balala's stance was echoed by his Health counterpart Mutahi Kagwe, who declared the businesses "are free" to resume their pre-Covid operations when questioned.

However, NPS, in a statement made later the same evening, claimed that the 7pm closure of bars remains very much in effect notwithstanding the curfew lift by President Kenyatta.
