Kenyatta: "Ready to close without protocols respect"

Advice during the new restrictions address

05-11-2020 by redazione

If there is no strong response from the Kenyans at all levels, from public administration to security, from counties to private individuals, the Kenyan government is ready to close the country or at any rate to apply much heavier restrictions than those that President Kenyatta set out yesterday in the new extraordinary emergency decree Covid-19.
Kenyatta began his speech taking it out on his subordinates, from political colleagues to security departments, both nationally and in individual counties.
"The truth is that our two levels of government are failing to enforce COVID-19 protocols," said the President, "and curfew check-ins have become opportunities to fuel corruption. It is a personal responsibility... Even as a leader, we have failed the test. We have conducted our business as if there were no virus. Let's make the leader's speech.
The President also said that the Government has set up a task force to issue localised and specific restrictions in the outbreak counties where a new campaign prepared by the Board of Governors with the motto "No mask, no service" will come into effect, which will aim to penalise those who show up without a mask in every office or place of services.  
"We do not want to go back to where we were. We do not want our economy to suffer again. We do not want our people to lose their jobs again," Uhuru specified, "so it is not the government's wish to close the economy, but whether or not we remain open now will depend on the public's response to the Covid-19 protocols.
During his speech at the State House in Nairobi, Kenyatta recalled that since the containment measures were loosened last September, hospital bed occupancy has increased by 140% in 38 days.
"In October the country had over 15,000 new cases of Covid-19 and about 300 deaths," he said, "now we are witnessing a new wave of this pandemic, so we have to ask ourselves where we went wrong and what we could have done differently.
