KENYA – (WARSOOR) – Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta is under fire for launching projects past curfew hours.
President Kenyatta launched two hospitals on Tuesday night and explained that it was necessary to do it at night so as to ensure efficiency in service provision.
He said the hospitals were meant to operate 24 hours and he needed to monitor that.
The president also explained that a daytime launch would have attracted large crowds, which further violates the social distancing restrictions.
Kenyans online accused the president of disobeying his own orders.
“Why is President Uhuru Kenyatta launching projects at night! Why is he defying curfew hours? He has no respect to his orders too, leave alone court orders,” Ongoma tweeted.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta should be tomorrow be arraigned in court of law for breaking curfew hours,” Miqdad Abdissalam tweeted.
“Now Uhuru should lift the curfew as he too sees the value of working extra hours in the night,” wrote Ahmad Salim.
