Senator Sakaja urges Uhuru to fully reopen the country
Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to fully reopen the country to enable businesses affected by the night curfew spring back to life.
Sakaja says that the country should be fully reopened since a good percentage of people in Nairobi have been vaccinated.
Speaking after meeting a group of business leaders within Nairobi, Sakaja says that the move by foreign countries like the UK to remove Kenya from the red list is a good indicator to fully reopen the country.
“The figures we are getting so far from the Ministry of Health indicate that a good percentage of vulnerable people in Nairobi County which was the epicenter for the Covid-19 virus has been vaccinated which is commendable,” said Sakaja.
“We have also seen foreign jurisdictions such as the United Kingdom have removed Kenya from the red list which is an encouraging an indicator,” he said.
On Friday, data from the Ministry of Health indicates that over 850,000 Kenyans have been fully vaccinated.
Another 2,439,528 people have at least one jab.
Some of the businesses adversely affected by the dusk to dawn curfew include bars, night clubs, matatu business and supermarkets that were operating on a 24 hour basis.
The senator has meanwhile urged Kenyans to continue observing the Covid-19 protocols like keeping social distance and wearing face masks.
“I also urge our people especially Nairobi to continue adhering to the Ministry of Health Guidelines, to keep wearing our masks, social distancing and to continue taking care of each other,” he said.
