A Kenyan high court has temporarily halted a government edict prohibiting unvaccinated persons from obtaining services at state agencies.
According to the appeal, the instruction, which was set to go into effect next week, was unlawful and discriminatory.
Judge Anthony Mirima of the High Court stated his judgment would stand until the matter was heard on January 4, 2022, and a conclusion was reached.
Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe stated in November that the decision was aimed at increasing the number of Kenyans who received the vaccine.
By the end of the year, the government hoped to have vaccinated 10 million Kenyans.
Only 8.1 million individuals have got a single dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, with over three million receiving two doses.
The directive’s suspension comes only days after a number of hotels and shopping malls stated that unvaccinated Kenyans would not be allowed inside their establishments.
