Kenyan musician Kevin Bahati popularly known as Bahati has written another letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta. In the letter posted on his facebook wall on January 3 2021, Bahati expressed his disappointment at the recent extended curfew.

Bahati stated that as an artist, their industry was struggling right now. This was mainly due to the curfew that was extended to March 12 2021. The singer noted that it had been a tough year for them and it was getting worse.

“These creatives are someone’s husbands and have families. They have families to feed and continuing the lock down was devastating for them, ” the letter read in part. Bahati claimed that the President had overlooked their importance and kept them at bay.

He also mentioned that the artists never received the 100 million that was set aside to cushion them in the harsh economic times that were brought about by Covid-19. The artist confirmed that despite that they were still trying to survive.

Bahati urged the president to consider reviewing their situation as most creatives were under pressure with some getting into depression. The “Mama” hit maker noted that the entertainment industry was the most affected with artists not getting enough time to perform.

The president on January 3 2021 extended the 10pm to 4am curfew to March 12 much to the dismay of many Kenyans. The reactions were warranted as most citizens assumed it would be done away with.

The complete U-turn from the president surprised most Kenyans as they failed to understand why the curfew would continue with the resumption of schools.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, however, insisted that the low numbers of Covid-19 infections and resumption of schools would not affect curfew hours.
