President Uhuru meets Governors over COVID-19 measures


President Uhuru Kenyatta is  meeting County Governors to review measures put in place across the Country to contain the spread of Corona virus.

The Fifth Extraordinary Session of the National and County Governments Coordinating Summit will also assess the impact of the phased easing of restrictions earlier put in place such as the lifting of the cessation of movement directive.

The meeting will take place between 11AM and 3PM, and thereafter President Uhuru will make his 10th state address on the Coronavirus pandemic.

The rising number of positive cases means we are back on the drawing board with the President under pressure from the Governors to impose a similar lockdown especially in Counties that are hotspots.

Its 21 days since President Uhuru made his address. At the time there were only 8,067 positive cases of COVID-19. The numbers have since risen past the 17,000 which is now a cause for concern as a majority of the Counties don’t have the capacity to deal with the spread of the virus.
