Government lifts Garissa curfew

26 June 2015, 14:23 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The government has lifted the curfew on Garissa County and others in the north Eastern region.

The government has said that the curfew in Mandera, Wajir, Garissa, Lamu and Tana River counties during Ramadhan will be lifted following a directive last week by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

" The Curfew on these regions has been revised to allow for area residents to celebrate Ramadhan holidays," the circular from the Interior Ministry said Friday.

President Kenyatta last week said that after complaints from area residents, it was vital that their religion is respected and they be allowed to fast in peace.

This follows queries by local leaders who had complained that area residents were suffering after being locked out of having any activities at night during the curfews.

The curfews usually take effect from 6.30 PM to 6.30 AM daily.

The areas were put under curfew following increased terrorist acts in the said areas and regions.

In the aftermath of the Garissa terrorist attacks, the government said that the curfew was needed to help the region get back to its feet after the attacks that saw 148 people killed.
