President Kenyatta reopens Nairobi, Mombasa, Mandera, extends curfew for 30 days


President Uhuru Kenyatta has lifted the ban of movement in and out of the Nairobi metropolitan area and the counties of Mombasa and Mandera which had been imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus in the country.

The president has however extended the dusk to dawn curfew for the next 30 days.

Addressing the Nation at Harambee House, President Kenyatta said the country has met a “reasonable level of preparedness” to handle the COVID-19 pandemic hence his decision to partially reopen the country.

He, however, stated that the order to reopen had been made conditionally, noting that should the situation get worse over the next 21 days, the country will revert to lock-down.
