    In a short video seen by kenyagist.com, Nairobi residents were seen shouting and celebrating in the streets with excitement.

    “I have seen a large crowd of people shouting and blowing whistles here in the city and I was not sure what was happening. At first I thought it was just a riot or a protest to discover it was people celebrating the end of a ceasefire in a designated area, “Keyym Peters, the announcer said while sharing the video.

    The president also lifted the ban on the closure of restaurants and bars. Hotels, cafes and restaurants will now be operational until the hour of not leaving.

    The advertisements were influenced by Kenyans and part of the leaders who used social media pages to express their views.

    “The next fast will depend on our actions or abandonment. Let’s be patriotic, ”Makueni senator Mutula Kilonzo said.

    “Alhamdulillah we can now pray in our mosques. God is Great, ”politician Billow Kerrow explained.

    On the other hand, senator Elgeyo Marakwet Kipchumba Murkomen, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, hinted that the lifting of the moratorium on the Covid-19 laws was due to a recent BBI referendum.

    Earlier in the morning, a section of Nairobi residents had taken to the streets to protest, among other things, an order to end the president-ordered protest on March 26, 2021.

    Part of the issues they want to address include; eliminating partial evacuation and evenings until the hour of no departure, the provision of food for everyone, the immediate cessation of police killings and atrocities and government repression.

    Others include; access to free and quality health care, clean water supply, better housing, equal access to employment, free education, immediate cessation of sexual violence and others.
