Coronavirus: Kenyan Gov't bans foreign trips for State, public officers

The Government has banned traveling for all public servants after the first case of coronavirus was confirmed in Kenya on Friday.

The Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua said this will enable Kenya to play her rightful role in limiting factors that may exacerbate the spread of coronavirus.

“All non-essential travel to any destination outside of the Republic of Kenya, whether on official government business or on private business, by State and Public Officers is hereby suspended until further notice,” Kinyua said.

Those affected include those at the office of the Attorney General, Cabinet Secretaries, County Governors, Constitutional Commissions, Principal Secretaries, Accounting Officers, Senators, Members of Parliament, Judiciary officials as well as staff at the County Assembly and State Corporations.

The suspension is to remain in effect until the resolution is vacated by the National Security Council.

State and public officers who are to represent the country at international engagements have been directed to write to the Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
