The Nairobi High Court has suspended a government order barring unvaccinated Kenyans from accessing basic services from December 21st.
In a short ruling on Tuesday, December 14, Judge Antony Mrima overturned Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe’s order, requiring all Kenyans to submit proof of immunization.
The decision followed a request from the city’s attorney, Harrison Kinyanjui, who claimed that the order was discriminatory and unconstitutional.
Judge Mrima said the orders would continue to be heard until a decision was made on the application.
The Supreme Court decision was a blow to CS Kagwe’s directive that Kenyans who have not been vaccinated will not benefit from basic government services.
