A section of Nairobi traders and residents want president Uhuru Kenyatta to end the curfew during tomorrow’s address claiming it has affected their businesses and livelihoods.

The residents say reopening the country will enable them to get back on their feet since they have been making huge losses in their businesses.

Matatu operators who spoke to Ghetto Radio News say that previously they used to make more profit in the evening and that the curfew imposition has affected their profits.

“The president should end the curfew to enable us earn a living. We Matatu sector, we are largely affected by the curfew because we are supposed to end our operations by 11pm,” said one matatu operator.

“Curfew now forces us to close our businesses at 9pm. We are just making losses,” he further stated.

Another resident claims that curfew and COVID-19 have led to increased domestic war among the married couples due to job losses and harsh economy.

“There is no money, no job and life is hard. Social issues like rape cases have increased, domestic Violence and family break-ups are on the rise. Let the government end the curfew to enable us hustle,” said Mary Kawera.

On the virus they have urged the government to do public sensation on COVID -19 Vaccine to act as a solution to curfew
