Kenyans Refusing To Self Quarantine To Face Jail Term
Cabiner Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has now advised all Kenyans coming into the country from overseas to self quarantine.
According to Kagwe all Kenyan nationals planning to travel overseas will be forced to sign a legal document stating that they are going to self quarantine.
He says that self quarantine is important for Kenyans from overseas since all the seven confirmed cases of Coronavirus are imported.
“We are now calling on Kenyans that if you know an individual who has agreed to quarantine and you can see them not self quarantining please report them to our toll free number 719,” said Kagwe.
Kagwe further stated that those people who are not self quarantining will face a jail term.
“It is a an offence punishable by a jail term for you to say that you are going to self quarantine and you do not, and effective today any Kenyan who is travelling outside the country must sign a legal form stating that you are going to self quarantine,” said Kagwe.
