Legal & Regulatory Update, Kenya: Special Edition COVID-19 Webinar, 30th April

  • The Kenyan government has put in place a number of additional measures to help curb the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19, acting more swiftly and decisively than many other sub-Saharan African countries. Lockdown mechanisms include a police-enforced night-time curfew between 7 pm and 5 am, announced on 27 March. Currently, the country has confirmed 363 cases and 14 deaths.
