A new week is here as COVID-19 continues spreading like wildfire in the country with total cases tallying at 5,811, this is what Kenyans should expect this week.
To begin with, this is a week Kenyans are set to know the fate of the reopening of religious places of worship in the country, this is after the Interfaith council which was tasked with coming up with protocals to guide the reopening of the places of worship revealed yesterday that it was set to hand over the final report to President Uhuru Kenyatta this week.
This is also the last week of the extended curfew and movement restrictions in and out of Mombasa, Nairobi and Mandera and it could be a week that could determine the fate of the reopening of the economy on 6th July because if the country records more COVID-19 cases this week then the President is most likely set to extend the COVID-19 containment measures to a later date.
In politics, Kenyans should expect this week to be a 'historic' week since the Yusuf Hajjji led Building Bridges Initiative taskforce is set to present the final drafting of the BBI report to President Uhuru Kenyatta after the taskforce mandate is set to lapse on 30th June this week.
There are already speculations that the final BBI report which is set to lead the country to a Referendum could propose a powerful President and a Prime Minister with 2 Deputies.
