During the state of Nation address,  Kenyatta ordered the nationwide night curfew to be extended for another 60 days. The bars and restaurants were instructed to close by 9pm every day.

Funerals and cremation ceremonies will be conducted within 72 hours and restricted to a maximum of 100 people to curb spread of COVID-19.

“The government will do its part to protect Kenyans but the first line of defence against this invisible enemy is the people” President Uhuru Kenyatta remarked.

Political gatherings were banned for the 30 days, this comes at a time when the political tension is very high.

“Today I direct that all forms of political gatherings be and are hereby prohibited for a period of 30 days effective midnight on this 12 of March,” President Uhuru Kenyatta said.

Deputy president who held public rallies at Budalangi Busia county for the better part of the day, bowed to Uhuru’s instructions and suspended all public engagements.

Ruto twitted, ” The Covid19 infection rates have become a serious source of concern making it necessary for GoK to take remedial measures to manage and contain the pandemic. With the President’s announcement of containment measures, I forthwith suspend all public engagement until further notice.”
