Bars across the country will remain closed for two days starting Saturday 5pm due to the National census period.
This is after Interior CS Fred Matiang’i ordered the closure for the smooth running of the census exercise.
He also called upon Kenyans to cooperate with the enumerators who would be handling the process.
“We are going to going close all our social places especially the bars at 5pm to give you an hour to be home before the enumerators arrive at 6pm so that they can find you at home,” he said.
He also issued a stern warning to those who will purport to be monitoring the census exercise without clearance adding that foreign agencies and individuals had been vetted for approval.
The annual Kenya Population and Housing Census is set to take place on the night of 24th August 2019.
The CS was speaking from Embu Stadium during the official opening of the 10th edition of the Water Services Companies Games.
