Coronavirus: President Uhuru Kenyatta Suspends All Social Gatherings – Video

Published

President Uhuru Kenyatta

On Friday, March 6, 2020 the Government of Kenya received confirmation of the first case of Covid-19, commonly known as coronavirus.

As you may recall, when the first case was announced, it was stated that 27 persons who had come into contact with the first patient were traced and had since tested the 27 people at the National Influenza Centre.

As at yesterday, two more cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed and the two have tested positive as a result of coming into contact with the first patient, and for public safety, health officials have already moved them into Kenyatta National Hospital Isolation facility.

Below are the directives laid down by the President:

THE DIRECTIVES

Fellow Kenyans,

My government has been working to monitor the spread of the virus. We have set up necessary containment and treatment protocols across the country. 

However, following the result of the two additional cases, we are now directing the following additional protocols:

1. The government is suspending travel for all persons coming into Kenya from any country with reported coronavirus cases.

Only Kenyan citizens and any foreigners with valid residence permits will be allowed to come in provided they proceed on self-quarantine or to a government designated quarantine facility.

This will take effect within the next 48 hours to cater for any passengers who may be en route. This directive will remain in effect for the next 30 days or as varied by the National Emergency Response Committee.

2. All persons who have come into Kenya in the last 14 days must self-quarantine. If any person exhibits symptoms such as cough, or fever, they should present themselves to the nearest health facility for testing.

3. We have suspended learning in all our education institutions with immediate effect. Consequently, and to facilitate a phased approach, primary and secondary day schools are to suspend operations from tomorrow.

For those in boarding schools, the school administration is to ensure that students are home by Wednesday, March 18 while universities and tertiary institutions are to close by Friday, March 20.

4. Where possible, government offices, businesses and companies are encouraged to allow employees to work from home, with the exception of employees working in critical or essential services.

5. In order to avoid the risk of transmission through physical handling of money, we encourage the use of cashless transactions such as mobile money and credit cards. We appeal to mobile operators and banks to take into consideration the situation, and reduce the cost of transactions during this period.

6. In line with the directive to avoid crowded places, citizens are encouraged to:

*Avoid congregating including in places of worship;

*Minimise attendance to social gatherings including weddings and funerals, and restrict the same to immediate family members;

*Avoid crowded places including shopping malls and entertainment premises;

*Minimise congestion in public transport wherever possible;

*Limitation of visitors to hospitalised patients in both public and private hospitals.

7. Hospitals and shopping malls are encouraged to provide soap, water and hand sanitisers and ensure that all their premises are regularly cleaned and disinfected.

President Muhammadu Buhari Finally Address His Citizens Over The #EndSARS Protest

Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari has finally addressed his citizens over the #EndSARS protests.

In his strongly-worded address, Buhari has thrown shades at President Nana Akufo-Addo, Hilary Clinton, and other world leaders who dared to talk about the impasse. Well, it looks like Buhari did not need our input on the matter and the pressure for Akufo-Addo to speak was unnecessary.

SARS had reportedly been terrorising the ordinary citizens, especially the youth, and even killing some. Former United States President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary Clinton, former Liberia President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, among others also criticised the Nigerian government over the reported deaths of protesters.

“To our neighbours in particular and the members of the international community, many of whom have expressed concern about the ongoing development in Nigeria, we thank you and urge you all to seek to know all the facts available before taking a position or rushing to judgement and making hasty pronouncements,” he said.
