Kenyans should brace for a fresh lockdown if governors convince President Uhuru Kenyatta to reintroduce restrictions to combat the soaring Covid-19 infections. Already, some of the county chiefs have indicated they will implore the President to re-impose the lockdown if the alarming pace of the pandemic continues.
The President has summoned the governors on Friday for the Fifth Extraordinary Session of the National and County Governments Co-ordination Summit. There has been a sharp surge of coronavirus cases across the country since the restrictions were eased on July 6. The meeting will review the virus containment measures and the impact of the phased restrictions.
