After the announcement by the Ministry of Health that we wrote about earlier, the optimism about a possible cancellation of the curfew at the end of the month was immediately cooled by the Minister of the Interior, Fred Matiang'i, who announced that the government had ruled out any possible extension of the start of the curfew during the holy month of Ramadan.
A statement appears in the official gazette that the ongoing curfew from 8pm to 4am in Kiambu, Kajiado, Machakos, Nairobi and Nakuru counties, which are classified as a sick zone due to a high prevalence of Covid-19, will remain as well as the rest of the country continues with a curfew from 10am to 4am for a period of 60 days from when it was called, which was on 29 March last.
"This order will apply during the evening hours between eight o'clock and four in the morning with effect from 29 March 2021 and will remain in force for a period of 60 days," Interior Secretary Fred Matiang'i said in the notice.
Matiang'i himself, on the day the restrictions were implemented, had indicated a 30-day period for the curfew.
The national curfew, which starts at 10am, is also likely to remain in place until the same date.
