Monday, May 18, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Government has clarified that it is not a requirement to wear a face mask inside a private vehicle.
Addressing the press on Monday, Government spokesman, Cyrus Oguna, said no one should be arrested if found without a mask in a private car though it should be encouraged to have one before leaving his/ her house to help cement the culture of wearing them in public places.
Colonel Oguna also said that the police are ‘enforcing the rule’ to help Kenyans get used to the new norm.
“If you are stepping out of your house, wear a mask,” Oguna said.
He said every Kenyan must find a way to achieve compliance to what the Government has set.
This is a big blow to traffic policemen who were using the opportunity to harass private car owners not wearing masks.
