President Uhuru Kenyatta has barred all Cabinet Secretaries from travelling outside Nairobi after a surge in Covid-19 cases across the country.
In a memo seen by Teachers Arena, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua said the CSs should not go out of Nairobi for the next one week.
“You are advised not to move out of Nairobi for the next one week until advised otherwise. This directive takes effect from the date of this communication,” the letter sent to specific CSs dated July 21 read.
This comes days after report that at least three CSs had contracted Covid-19 and are in self-isolation.
With the cases increases by the day, cabinet secretaries have been seen racing against time to inspect and complete development projects ahead of September when they are to appear before the President for appraisals.
