Saturday May 23, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta has signaled the end of curfews and lockdowns imposed on the nation and several hotspot Counties.
Addressing the nation from State House, Nairobi, Uhuru announced that he will soon reopen the economy.
The Head of State acknowledged that the virus may stay around for long but life will soon be back to normal.
He says he will emulate other nations which have eased lockdown such as Rwanda and Uganda.
“Time has come and I have directed our Cabinet Secretaries and health officers to start explaining to Kenyans that we cannot continue with lockdowns and curfews.”
“It will come to a point when we shall open the country.”
“However, managing the crisis would depend on us.”
“This disease will continue spreading if we do not follow measures stipulated.”
“But if we do, we shall overcome and triumph,” Kenyatta proclaimed.
The Head of State further announced that Kenyans will be allowed to resume work, but urged everyone to ensure that their neighbours, colleagues, friends and families were protected.
“You have the mandate to protect yourself and others.”
“When we start opening our economy, you should adhere to measures we have set out to protect yourself and others,” Kenyatta stated while issuing his eight-point economic stimulus.
He urged Kenyans to continue adhering to directives stipulated by the Government in the fight against Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
