President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday announced tighter measures to curb the spread of Covid-19 third wave, which is more lethal and spreads faster.
The President imposed a lockdown in Nairobi, Nakuru, Kiambu, Machakos, and Kajiado counties, which he termed as “disease-infected zones”.
He also added two hours to the existing nationwide curfew in the Covid-19 hotspots. In the five devolved units, the curfew will be strating at 8pm until 4am while things remain the same for the rest of the country.
The Association of Kenya Professional Insurances Agents (AKPIA) today, 28th March, issued a statement, warning motorists.
The organisation said the motor insurance claim would be revoked for driving past curfew hours.
“We would like to inform you that driving past curfew hours without essential services authorisation or valid emergency reasons could render your motor insurance claim invalid.
“Please avoid driving past 8pm as ordered by the government and adhere to all other GOK/MOH Covid-19 guidelines,” an extract from the statement read.
AKPIA concluded: “Kindly contact your insurance company/agent/broker for any further clarification or information.”
