Just days after President Uhuru Kenyatta revised curfew hours and announced a ban on political amid rising cases of Covid-19 infections, a section of Tanga Tanga allied Leaders have defied his orders.
Led by Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria, the leaders have gone against President Kenyatta’s directives and held public gatherings in contrast with the laid down Covid-19 regulations by the Ministry of Health.
Kuria yesterday held a meeting dubbed “consultative” with the members of the public at the engineer township of Kinangop Constituency in Nyandarua County.
Taking to his Facebook account, the Legislator divulged the news to netizens shortly after the meeting.
“Having a consultative meeting with Wananchi at Engineer Township, Kinangop Constituency, Nyandarua County earlier today.” Wrote Moses Kuria.
In a rare show of defiance, the law-maker was seen freely intermingling with the people, with his face-mask at the chin, and some of the audience not wearing the masks at all.
This comes just days after President Kenyatta issued new guidelines on November 3 2020 to help curb the recent surge in the number of Coronavirus infections in the Country.
Among the changes announced by the head of state includes shrinking the dusk to dawn curfew from the original 11 PM to 5 AM to the current 10 PM to 4 AM, and also the ban on political and public gatherings.
The move has seen a number of public and pollical gatherings aborted, with the most recent being DP Ruto canceling his tour of Machakos County.
ODM leader Raila Odinga has also rescheduled a number of his rallies in a move geared towards curbing the recent surge in the number of infections.
