Before Saturday 6 June 2020, Kenyans were filled with high hopes that the President Uhuru would suspend the restriction of movement imposed in some counties across the country. What Kenyans didn’t know was the rude shock that awaited them.
Contrary to Kenyans expectations, President Uhuru announced an extension of the nationwide curfew and cessation of movement in Mombasa, Nairobi, and Mandera by further 30 days.
The president, however, relaxed the curfew hours which will be now between 9 pm to 4 am.
In accordance with the advice of the National Security Council, President Uhuru announced the lifting of the cessation of movement in Kwale and Kilifi counties from June 7, 2020.
The president said the opinion at the council was divided on whether or not to open the economy.
“We must accept that we are not dealing with a right or wrong opinion we are caught in between two rights. Those who want to open the economy are right and those opposed to opening the economy are also right,” he said.
“We must speak truthfully to each other. The rate of infection in Kenya would have been very high had we not taken the measures we took.”
