Court suspends government’s directive on vaccine certificate

The High Court sitting in Nairobi has suspended a directive by the government denying unvaccinated Kenyans from accessing basic services from December 21.

In a ruling issued Tuesday, Justice Antony Mrima set aside the directive by the Cabinet Secretary for Health, Mutahi Kagwe, that required all Kenyans to show prove of vaccination before they can access services like Kenya Revenue Authority services, education, immigration services, hospital and prison visitation, NTSA and port services among others.

The ruling followed a petition by city Lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui who argued that the directive was discriminatory and unconstitutional.

Justice Mrima stated that the directive will remain suspended pending hearing and determination of the petition.
