He continued by saying that the new orders will take effect from Wednesday 25th and will continue for the next two weeks.

The operators will, however, be exempted from paying taxes for the rest of the year.

Other measures introduced by the Governor include shifts among county employees and an end to office meeting and departmental meeting

“Machakos Govt staff to work in shifts. This is applicable to non-essential services. Chief officers to develop work shift schedules by end of today.

No office meetings. All staff and departmental meetings to be conducted virtually, using the internet & social media.

Our older generation is at a bigger threat from COVID-19. I ask all Machakos residents above 65 years to restrict movement, stay home & avoid mixing with young people & children especially those who had just migrated from the cities and towns.”
