President Uhuru Kenyatta extends nationwide curfew by a further 60 days saying he'd not hesitate to toughen the containment measures in the coming days.
The head of state, however, varied the commencement time for the curfew from 9 pm to 11 pm up to 4 am.
The government has now allowed eateries and bars to operate up to 10 pm while allowing religious gatherings being allowed to accommodate one-third of normal sitting capacity.
The changes will be effective on Tuesday 29, September 2020. Kenyatta directed that learning institutions shall remain closed.
He indicated that the government has paramount consideration for learners' safe.
He stated that schools will only re-open when there is certainty on how the health and well-being of learners can be guaranteed.
The president asked the Education CS Magoha to issue a calendar for the 2020 academic year clarifying if it will be pushed to 2021.
Kenyatta was keen to note that the Covid-19 containment measures had aided in a significant drop in the number of crime incidents across the country and a decline in road carnage.
