Daily Countrywide Curfew Extended For 60 Days

The daily national curfew has been extended for further 60 days, according to a Gazette notification released on Sunday by the Ministry of Interior.

COVID-19, according to Ministry of Interior CS Fred Matiangi, necessitated the prolongation.

For the time being, all public gatherings of any kind or movements have been prohibited during the curfew period.

“This Order shall apply during the hours of darkness between ten o’clock in the evening and four o’clock in the morning with effect from the 28th of May, 2021 and shall remain in effect for a period of sixty days thereof,” the Public Order Number 3 of 2021 reads in part.

“There shall be no public gatherings, processions or movement either alone or as a group during the period of the curfew except as shall be permitted, in writing, by a police officer in charge of the police in a county or a police officer in charge of the police in a division/sub-county,” the Order reads.
