President Uhuru declares night time curfew in wake of coronavirus pandemic

President Uhuru Kenyatta, on Wednesday, ordered a curfew in Kenya from 7 pm to 5 am effective Friday, March 27.

The president said the curfew will be effective to curb the spread of the virus.

Uhuru preached hope that Kenyans, through cooperation and unity will overcome the pandemic.

“Together we shall be victorious. We can win this battle. We can and shall defeat the coronavirus pandemic,” President Kenyatta said.

On the previous cases, the president said it is unfortunate that cases of transmission were linked to religious and political leaders, who should lead other citizens in fighting the spread of the virus.

The president was referring to the case of Kilifi Deputy Governor and a Priest who both failed to self-quarantine after taking trips to countries which have reported cases of covid-19.

The Deputy Governor was taken to forced quarantine after failing to isolate himself as per the government’s directives.

He tested positive for coronavirus.

In another case, a priest who had from Italy failed to self isolate himself and instead attended a burial in Siaya County, exposing many to the risk of contracting the virus.

Kilifi county has been identified as one of the risk areas for the spread of the virus.

Lighting some hope, the president announced the full recovery of one covid-19 patient.

“Today we have registered the first patient who has fully recovered from the virus,” he said.

The president further noted that the country has registered three more cases bringing the total number to 28.
