Kenya on Sunday extended the nationwide 10 pm to 4 am curfew for another 60 days. This is effective from May 28 to stop the spread of coronavirus infections.
The curfew which currently runs between 10 pm and 4 am will be in place until 27 July.
“This Order shall apply during the hours of darkness between ten o’clock in the evening and four o’clock in the morning with effect from the 28 of May 2021 and shall remain in effect for a period of sixty days thereof,” read a legal notice dated May 28, 2021, signed by Interior CS Fred Matiang’i.
“There shall be no public gatherings, processions or movement either alone or as a group during the period of the curfew except as shall be permitted, in writing, by a police officer in charge of the police in a county or a police officer in charge of the police in a division/ sub-county,” the Government said through a special Gazette notice invoking the Public Order (State Curfew) Order No. 3 of 2021.
