His Excellence Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday ordered lifting of nationwide night curfew the government imposed at the onset of COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 amid drastic slump in new infections and fatalities.

Speaking at National Heroes’ Day ceremony in central Kenyan county of Kirinyaga, President Uhuru Kenyatta said the night curfew had been vacated amid diminishing threat of the pandemic to the economy and livelihoods.

“I hereby order and direct the nationwide dusk to dawn curfew that has been in effect from March 27, 2020 to be vacated with immediate effect,” said Kenyatta.

He also added that attendance to houses of worship had been raised from one third of capacity to two thirds, while stressing that adherence to coronavirus prevention measures including wearing masks and physical distancing will be maintained.

Kenyatta also revealed that 5 million adults had been vaccinated against COVID-19 but warned that the country was yet to flatten the curve, hence the need for citizens to continue adhering to SOPs.
