Curfew • President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Covid-19 containment measures are commendable, but not the 8pm start of the curfew, says Ian Mgenyi. “This is too early, as commuters are forced to rush to beat the deadline, causing crowding at matatu stages.” This, he adds, hampers social distancing, endangering the people being protected. He wants the time pushed back to 10pm. His contact is ianorberts56@gmail.com.
