Deputy President William Ruto has announced that he has postponed his public rallies due to the resurgence of Covid-19 cases in Kenya. 

DP Ruto added that he would scale down his public engagements until further notice. 

"The upsurge in Covid19 cases strongly indicates that a second wave may be in the offing. For this reason, I have decided to significantly scale down my public engagements until further notice. The empowerment meetings for this weekend in machakos, kitui and makueni are postponed," part of his tweet read. 

This comes barely a week after CS Mutahi Kagwe expressed concerns over the increase of Covid-19 cases in the country. 

President Uhuru Kenyatta also hinted that they could be forced to revive some of the measures due to the surge. 

“We’re going through that very difficult time of saying ‘now what do we do again, do we close up?’ We shall be coming back to that…not today, but soon…but when I see this, it says that we don’t have to (go into lockdown) if only people would observe (guidelines) and would be caring of their fellow citizens," the Head of State said while addressing a church congregation.
