President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced a review on hours in which the two-month-old dusk-to-dawn curfew will be spanning for the next 30 days.
The President on Saturday, June 6, announced the dusk-to-dawn curfew being extended by another 30 days owing to the recent constant surge of Covid-19 cases.
Even with the extension, the curfew will be active from 9 p.m to 4 a.m the following dawn.
“The commencement time for the same shall be varied from 7 pm to 9 pm with the end time for the same being varied from 5 am to 4 am. Therefore, effective 7th June 2020, the nationwide dusk-to-dawn curfew will run from 9 pm to 4 am,” he announced.
That translates into people getting the opportunity to get to work fully and as well have enough time to get to their places of residence early enough before the curfew enforcers take charge.
At the same time, the president announced that the cessation of movement in and out of the Nairobi Metropolitan area, Mombasa and Mandera would be extended for the next 30 days.
