Unlike other functions where the Head of State interacts freely with his guests at the end of the ceremony, this time was different.

There were no handshakes, in line with the directive that was issued by the Ministry of Health as the country fights Coronavirus.

The seats were also arranged a few metres from each other and the leaders minimized their interaction throughout the service.


On Friday, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe urged Kenyans to avoid social gatherings and encouraged handwashing as one of the ways of fighting the spread of the virus.

He added the next few days would be crucial saying the new measures put in place regarding public transport and congestion in supermarkets were aimed at ensuring the virus is contained and the numbers do not go higher.

So far, seven people in Kenya have tested positive for the virus which has claimed over 9000lives so far.

Over 280,000 deaths have been reported and out of this, over 92,000 have recovered.
