The Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala has revealed that curfew hours will end in a months' time just days after the government extended the 10pm to 4am curfew hours.
Speaking in media forum on Magical Kenya Travel Expo, CS Najib Balala said that several discussions are being undertaken by relevant ministries on the issue of reopening the economy. According to him, the Covid-19 vaccination programme is vital in the reopening of the economy. This will also boost the confidence of international visitors into the country.
Therefore, the government is trying to balance between the economy of the country and the Covid-19 pandemic infections.
CS Najib Balala said that the entertainment sector and the crowd polling events should be well managed to avoid further spread of Covid-19 cases in the country. A spike in infections will lead to further review of the Covid-19 containment measures. This will involve strict curfew hours and even the sensassion of movement.
He added that he is still optimistic toward the end of curfew hours in the country.
" We are optimistic...in a month's time just days after the government extended the 10pm to 4am curfew hours." Said CS Najib Balala.
In addition, the Kenya Association of Hotel keepers and Caterers ( KAHC) called for a review of the curfew hours.
