Interior CS Fred Matiang’i bans Keshas during census exercise on Saturday & Sunday nights

Interior CS Fred Matiang'i on Thursday extended the closure of night clubs to include Keshas (night vigils) and other worship activities from operating on the two nights when the national census will be taking place.

The CS clarified that the restriction of night activities on the nights of August 24 and August 25 did not only include recreational joints but also places where worshipers meet during the night.

"The activities of Saturday and Sunday night will not only affect those of us who visit social places. Social places are many. With tremendous humility, those of us who go to keshas and other places of worship, let us shift the prayers to our houses so we can be counted. All schools should also be closed, both private and public," the Interior CS announced.

Matiang'i pleaded with Kenyans to cope with the restriction as the census exercise takes place once every ten years.

He advised Kenyans who prefer to enjoy their drinks in bars and night clubs to shift their base of operation for the two nights.

"We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by the closing of social joints. On a personal level you can have your drink from 2-5 pm. You can watch Arsenal and Liverpool at home, your family may have the rare chance of watching with you," he said.
