Government-imposed measures against the deadly coronavirus are set to take the center stage during tommorow event as curfew reportedly lapses just a day ago
The top measures which kenyans should expect to be addressed by the head of state, include a nationwide nighttime curfew, a ban on large public gatherings, continued ban of physical politicial activities and mandatory wearing of face coverings in public and maybe a partial lockdown following the latest increased number of Covid-19 cases reported in the past one week.
This comes after some top government officials are allegedly urging President Kenyatta to extend the containment measures even further.
The president is also expected to address matters concerning the Building Bridges Initiative BBI which is still in dilemma after a bench of five high court judges termed the Bill unconstitutional, therefore it’s null and void though the BBI proponents are said to planning to go to the court of appeal to reverse the high court ruling.
President Uhuru is also expected to address the education sector following the recent KCSE results released by education CS Prof George Magoha.
The president’s speech also comes as the country will be marking one year since it announced its first case of the coronavirus.
