Details of Uhuru’s Meeting with Governors
Earlier today, the Council of Governors requested President Kenyatta to revise curfew hours from 11 pm-4 am to 9 pm-4 am.
The governors met with President Kenyatta to review containment measures following the sharp increase of Covid-19 infections in the country.
The Governors declared the beginning of a campaign to fight coronavirus dubbed "No Mask No Service".
The Council of Governors Chair Wycliffe Oparanya told President Kenyatta that the campaign is aimed at ensuring people follow the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health.
Governor Oparanya stated that any worker found rendering services to a person not observing the protocols will be found liable.
"There has been laxity in enforcement of the existing protocols, especially in public transport. The political class has also become super-spreaders of the virus due to political meetings," Oparanya said.
