President Uhuru has extended the daily, dusk-to-dawn curfew up to Friday, March 12.

The curfew will continue to be enforced across the country from 10.00 pm to 4.00am.

In an Executive Order issued on Sunday, President Uhuru further announced a 60-day ban on all gatherings including political meetings that may act as super-spreader events.

Funerals and weddings have however been exempted from the ban provided the number of persons in attendance is capped at not more than 150.

Venues holding gatherings of this kind will be expected to have the capacity to accommodate guests in accordance with COVID-19 protocols and guidelines.

All overnight vigils and events of any kind will remain prohibited indefinitely.

Kenya has so far confirmed 96,802 coronavirus since the pandemic was confirmed locally in March.
