Kenya extends night-time curfew


Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced an extension of the countrywide 21:00 to 04:00 curfew for a further 30 days.

Mr Kenyatta also extended the closure of bars and pubs for another 30 days. Hotels are, however, allowed to sell alcohol to residents.

Conversely, he has increased the number of guests allowed at funerals and weddings from 15 to 100 people.

He also announced that the ministries of sports and health will jointly issue guidelines on the gradual resumption of sporting events in the country.

This comes as the nation reported 213 new Covid-19 cases, pushing the total number of confirmed infections across the country to 33,016.

Five new deaths have brought the total number of fatalities to 564. Just over 19,000 people have recovered.
