The order applies to both disease infected areas where the curfew runs from 8pm to 4am and the rest of the country where the curfew starts at 10pm and ends at 4am.

NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 14 – The ongoing nationwide curfew imposed to check the spread of COVID-19will run until May 29, 2021, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi has said.

In the notice, Matiangi revised a list of those exempted from the curfew and restriction of movement orders to 26, including new category of workers who had been left out in the initial list.

Advocates of the High Court who had earlier sued for not being included in the essential workers list have are among those added.
