According to Murkomen, the move by the Head of State to open up the country was not the result of requests from the people.

Thus, the vocal senator points out that the move is not in the interest of Kenyans but in the politicians before the BBI referendum.

“The lifting of the moratorium on the movement and the rest of the COVID19 rules is sponsored by the BBI referendum and is not your request,” Murkomen wrote on Twitter.

Speaking today during the Labor Day celebrations, President Uhuru Kenyatta lifted temporary closures in five counties that had been marked as disease-ridden areas.

The Head of State changed the curfew and ordered the opening of bars and cafes where they would work until 7:00.

Hotels, restaurants and cafes were also allowed to operate until the time of the exit but were ordered to increase open spaces while considering social exclusion, cleaning and wearing toys.

He further announced that the schools will be reopened as planned from Monday, May 10, 2021 as directed by the Ministry of Education

Yesterday and the good part of last week, Netizens were on hand demanding that the government open up the country and allow Kenyans to find ways to make their daily bread.

Under the hashtags #Disception of the country and #Matchtosthousehouse, the designers had gathered all over the social media and organized a procession of the President to address their concerns.

Following a new order to revoke the curfew in some infected areas, some took to social media claiming that their cries were heard.

However, according to Murkomen, the move is backed by the BBI referendum, which is expected in June, and will be accompanied by proponents of the bill.
