Kenyans anticipate lifting of the curfew by President Uhuru Kenyatta

Kenyans are expressing cautious optimism on their social media pages regarding tomorrow’s address by the president. They anticipate that tomorrow, President Uhuru Kenyatta will ease some of the Covid-19 restrictions that are in place.

Some of the restrictions they want the President to ease is the curfew and cessation of movement in and out of counties. Most Kenyans claim that they are ready to go back to their normal lives.

A lot of people have shared hilarious videos on their social media pages. Some of the videos show how the president will disappoint Kenyans when he extends the curfew. Others are pleading with the president to ease the curfew orders. A few seem optimistic that ‘freedom is coming tomorrow.’

Businesses have started preparations for when they will resume work after 6th June. Government offices are also gearing up for work.

Hint

During his speech on 27th May, the president hinted that he may ease some of the Covid-19 restrictions that are in place.

He said that some of the measures currently in place are not sustainable. He also said that Kenyans can not continue with lockdown and curfews.

To Kenyans, his speech meant that he would lift the curfew during his next address which is on 6th June.

Kenyatta said that in case they partially lift the restrictions, Kenyans will have to be very responsible. They will keep wearing their masks, sanitizing and maintaining social distance. Otherwise, Covid-19 would spread like wild fire.

Lockdown and curfew

70 days ago, Kenya imposed a dusk to dawn curfew. The president also announced cessation of movement in and out of Nairobi and four other counties.

The lockdown and curfew has affected a lot of businesses. The Kenyan economy is crumbling. Kenyan citizens can barely afford to pay their house rent.

However, a lot of people have expressed concerns on schools reopening because the government is yet to combat Covid-19.
