He said the congregational open would commence in phases. On their part, the public will attend church services under strict regulations and conformity.

President Uhuru Kenyatta said churches would open in less than three weeks after engaging with colleagues in the entire country.

“The prohibition against social and political gatherings, of whatever nature, is extended for a further period of 30 days. The restriction of the operation of bars to ‘take-away’ onlyand the restrictions on the number of persons who can attend weddings and funerals is extended for a further period of 30 days,” added the President.

In addition, President Kenyatta ordered the Ministry of Education to address the public regarding when the 2020 academic calendar would resume for both tertiary institutions and primary education.
