Opening bars banned

On June 6 2020, President Uhuru declared that all bars will remain closed for another 30 days as Kenya fights Covid-19.

"... the ban on all forms of gatherings, including but not limited to political gatherings, social gatherings, including bars be and is hereby extended for a further 30 days,” the President said.

Uhuru explained that it’s not the right time to open up bars since the country is experiencing a spike in coronavirus infections.
