Curfew Worries: Nakuru Sex Workers Faults The Government For Exclusion From List Of Essential Services’ Providers

President Kenyatta’s announcement touching on the Friday curfew seems not to have augured well with different sectors which are now coming out one after the other to give their voices.

The government resolved to effecting a dawn to dusk curfew the aim being curbing transmission of coronavirus.

In his address on Wednesday, the President stated that no one will be expected to be found out of their homes between 7:00 pm and 5:00 am, that being enforced by the national police service where the need arises.

The President however mentioned different services and sectors deemed essential and critical that will not be subject to the directive.

Sex workers in Nakuru are now not in good terms with him, the President, after learning they are not part of the critical sectors thus being affected by the curfew.

They are said to have moved to court to challenge the directive seeking to be added to the category of essential services’ providers hence being exempted from the curfew.

“We have lost 7 million in the past two days, allow us to work and service those excluded from the curfew. They should be taken care of because they too have feelings,” one was heard.

They say they want to offer their services to those not being affected by the curfew including licensed security guards, health practitioners, supermarkets’ attendants and even the law enforcers among others.

The Law Society of kenya had also hinted at seeking the help of the Judiciary after the lawyers’ umbrella noted that the government had not listed legal services among the critical and essential ones during the partial lockdown.
