Government imposes curfews in 13 counties, including Kericho

On Thursday, June 17, the government announced a curfew from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m. in Kisumu, Kericho and 1q other counties in the western region of the country.

Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe declared them areas infected with the disease.

Kagwe said the government revised curfew times in all 13 counties from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. following a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases.

“In the last 14 days, infections in Busia, Vihiga, Kisii, Nyamira, Kakamega, Bungoma, Kericho, Bomet, Trans Nzoia, Kisumu, Siaya, Homa-Bay and Migori counties have made up 60% of the burden of national work, ”the CS said.

Residents of the lake region denounce curfew

Residents of the Lakes Region have since denounced the government-imposed directive to curb the spread of the new coronavirus.

“This COVID-19 pandemic has destroyed our lives. Our businesses have been affected and we are experiencing low sales. With the curfew now imposed at 7 p.m., things will be worse,” said a resident of Bungoma.

Another businesswoman said business normally resumes at 7 p.m. and will therefore suffer more with the restriction in place.

“We usually sell more items from 7pm. Mnatuumiza jameni (you make us suffer),” she said.
