President Uhuru Kenyatta has extended the dusk to dawn curfew by another 60 days.
This was following a meeting with One Kenya Alliance (OKA) leaders and ODM’s Raila Odinga in Mombasa over Covid-19 measures.
The head of state pledged to lead by example.
He did, however, lift restrictions for counties previously identified as virus hotspots.
They counties include; Kisumu, Siaya, Homabay, Migori, Busia, Kakamega, Vihiga, Bungoma, Kisii, Nyamira, Kericho, Bomet and Trans Nzoia.
The president also suspended for a further 60 days all physical and in-person public gatherings and meetings, including political rallies and campaign meetings for the upcoming general elections.
As a result, the annual Devolution Conference set for August 23 until August 26 has been suspended.
All other social gatherings, including weddings, funerals and other similar events or ceremonies, will allow a 100-person attendance limit.
“In particular, 18 counties have recorded a positivity rate above 20 per cent, and over the last week, the following counties have recorded a positivity rate of above 30 per cent: Kiambu, Nyandarua, Murang’a, Makueni, Machakos, Baringo, Meru, and Nyeri,” said the president.
