ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi has thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for lifting the nationwide dusk-to-dawn curfew.

Mudavadi said that the move by the Head of State to lift the curfew was a relief for many Kenyans who have been suffering from its imposition.

Mudavadi's statement comes hours after President Uhuru kenyatta lifted the curfew with immediate effect during the 58th Mashujaa Day Celebration at the Wang'uru Stadium in Kirinyaga county.

"I hereby order that the nationwide dusk to dawn curfew that has been in effect from March 27, 2020, be and is hereby vacated with immediate effect," President Uhuru said.

Reacting to the president's move, Mudavadi said that the lifting the curfew was a good step in reopening the economy and would give a life line to businesses that have suffered due to coronavirus pandemic.

"Thank you Mr President for listening to the pleas of many hardworking Kenyans including myself. This is a good step towards opening up the economy & giving a life line to the businesses that have suffered during this period," Mudavadi said.

The ANC boss, however, urged Kenyans to continue adhering to his Covid-19 regulations and go get the Covid-19 jab to prevent the country from going back to lockdown.

"Let us continue adhering to the Covid regulations and get vaccinated to avoid going back into lockdown as we forge ahead," he said.
