President Uhuru Kenyatta had some devastating news for kenyans as he delivered his sixth national address on the Covid19 pandemic. According to a Press release dated January 3 2021, Uhuru Kenyatta revealed that the 10pm to 4am curfew would stay in place.

“The 10pm to 4am curfew has been extended until March 12 2021” read the statement in part. This dented the hopes of many Kenyans who have had the curfew as a stumbling block to most of their plans.

It was, however, noted that despite the continuous decline in new infections, the president was adamant to let the curve flatten. Learners going back to school was also his point of focus as he pointed out that their safety was key in resuming their studies.

The statement included guidelines that demanded that teaching staff who were above 58 years old were expected to perform their duties in spaces that had good air circulation. This was in part related to what Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha had said earlier last week.

The CS had requested that in order to achieve social distancing, some schools would be required to undertake their studies outside classrooms. Kenyans did react to this but in his statement, the president leaned towards supporting the idea.

Other guidelines forbade schools from holding any functions that involved crowds. Activities such as prize giving were banned for a further 90 days.

The transport industry was also asked to keep their passenger capacity at 60 per cent. All gatherings were also kept to the usual standards with large crowds being discouraged.

As students go back to school, parents will be focusing on making ends meet as life is yet to go back to normal.
