Hotel Workers Protest Of Recently Imposed Lockdown {VIDEO}

Hotel workers in Kenya have taken to the streets to protest against the lockdown measures announced by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In a state address last week the President announced new measures mainly targeting the one zoned disease-infested area. The counties in the zone include Nairobi, Nakuru, Kiambu, Machakos, and Kajiado. During the period, the sale of alcohol and sit-in customers in restaurants and bars was suspended whereas eateries were only allowed to sell takeaway meals.

Taking to the streets today the hotel workers said that they had suffered through 2020 and had only started to pick off by paying their rent arrears. They stated that their families lacked food and they had lost their jobs due to the measures put in place. They are now demanding that the lockdown be lifted through a hashtag #Unlockourcountry that seems to have gained momentum since yesterday.
