President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday, March 26 announced the cessation of movement into and out of five counties namely Nairobi, Machakos, Nakuru, Kajiado and Kiambu counties.

The Head of State also announced that curfew hours in these counties have been reviewed to 8pm to 4am, effective Saturday, March 27.

Terming the five counties as “disease-infected” regions, President Kenyatta said the areas account for 70 per cent of Kenya’s confirmed COVID-19 infections.

President Kenyatta announced that the curfew hours in the other 42 Kenyan counties remain unchanged, meaning the 10pm to 4am shut-out remains in operation.

More soon.
