“What Will People Eat?” – Uhuru Kenyatta Explains Why He Did Not Order A Total Lockdown In Kenya

Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has ruled out a total lockdown in the country saying locking down would leave people with no food.

He banned movement in and out of the capital Nairobi and three other coastal counties where coronavirus cases have been on the rise, in his latest address on Monday.
