Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta announced on Monday that the night lock would be extended by 30 days, as more and more cases of coronavirus occur, although he has ruled out a prison sentence for the time being.
Kenyatta has detailed that the curfew will continue to exist between 9:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. local time and has defended that a restriction would not be beneficial, while addressing individual responsibility for containing the spread of the pandemic.
The Kenyan president has also said that universities will not be opening their doors until January 2021, and stresses that religious ceremonies can continue to take place, although between tight security measures, the Nation newspaper said.
It was found that these actions could only last an hour, have a maximum of one hundred believers, and exclude people under the age of thirteen or over 58. “The harsh reality is that we are at war with an invisible enemy and there should be no mercy from any party during the war,” he argued.
