President Uhuru Kenyatta asked Kenya Power to suspend debts and keep Kenyans lights on, despite any outstanding bills. He said that its only Kenya Power that can make Kenyans watch news and updates from the government.

"I have also requested the Kenya Power and Lighting Company not to disconnect power to those who are unable to pay but rather understand the situation we are in,” the President said.

The Head of State was speaking during a local Kikuyu dialect interview conducted by journalists Gatonye Mbugua (Kameme FM), Jeff Kuria (Innoro FM) and Karanja wa Kamau (Coro FM), that was held at State House Nairobi.

He also pleaded with Landlords not to harras tenants during the difficult period. He urged landlords to show unity. 

"If someone has for years been your tenant and has never failed to pay rent, it’s only logical that you reciprocate at this difficult time. This is a time for compassion and understanding,” he explained.

“I highly appreciate what some of our property owners are doing. Indeed we need to work together and understand each other," he reiterated.

“This pandemic requires us to stick to the highest hygiene standards hence, I have asked the Nairobi Metropolitan service to ensure all residents of Nairobi access clean water. They should stop water vendors from selling this commodity," he stated.
