The Kenya High Commission London is in continuous communication with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Headquarters in Nairobi about the fate of some Kenyans who may be stranded in the UK due to flight cancellations occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are working on logistics for a possible evacuation flight from London?s Heathrow to Nairobi. Kenya Airways has given 211 as the minimum number of passengers for whom a chartered flight can be arranged.

Those keen to fly back to Nairobi will be expected to meet the cost for their air ticket and also be subjected to the 14-28 days mandatory quarantine period imposed by the Government at their own cost.


We request those in need of this service to contact us via email at info@kenyahighcom.org.uk and emergency duty officer at +44 7979 973 794.

Additional information will be shared in due course regarding dates and cost of the flight once viability of flight is confirmed. We urge all Kenyans to remain vigilant as well as observe all preventive measures as advised.

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) a Public Health Emergency of international concern in January 2020.

  1. The Government of Kenya is closely monitoring the unfolding situation and has further set up a Crisis Management Committee to advice on the impact of this situation to Kenyans at home and abroad.
  2. We urge Kenyans living and travelling to the United Kingdom to remain vigilant and adhere to the prescribed precaution and prevention guidelines provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UK Government through the following websites;https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019
    https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response
  3. The health, welfare and safety of Kenyans living in the United Kingdom remain a top priority for the Mission and the Government of the Republic of Kenya.
  4. Arising from the pandemic, the Government of Kenya has banned entry of foreign travellers from countries with confirmed cases of COVID-19. This directive is purely aimed at containing the spread of the infection.
  5. However, Kenyan citizens and any foreigners with valid Kenya Residency permits will be allowed entry but upon arrival, they are required to exercise self-isolation or proceed to a Government designated quarantine facility for necessary interventions.
  6. The Mission is closely monitoring the situation and will continue to work with the relevant authorities in Kenya and the United Kingdom to provide appropriate guidance and assistance to Kenyans living in the United Kingdom and foreigners looking to visit Kenya.

Kenyans found outside during

curfew hours to be quarantined

Health Chief Administrative Secretary Dr. Mercy

Mwangangi addresses the press on April 19, 2020.

Health Chief Administrative Secretary Dr. Mercy Mwangangi on Sunday announced that the government had introduced a new measure to ensure compliance with the curfew hours in the fight against Covid-19. Speaking while addressing the press at Afya House, Dr. Mwangangi said that Kenyans found outside of their houses during the said period will now be assumed to have contacted suspected cases of coronavirus and hence placed under quarantine. “Going forward, fellow Kenyans, all those who break the curfew rules will be assumed to have been in contact with suspected cases and hence will be quarantined for a period of 14 days,” she said. “We have activated the Nyumba Kumi initiative and, further to this, we shall now utilize technology in tracking and surveillance of any members of the public who are congregating post curfew hours.” She also stated that the Ministry of Health was aware of malicious traders recycling used face masks and selling them back to members of the public. The CAS stated that the ministry would hence issue guidelines on proper disposal of face masks, further urging Kenyans to undertake due diligence before buying them.

“We have received disturbing news that some unscrupulous persons are recycling face masks after collecting them from bins and selling them to unsuspecting Kenyans. In particular, we’ve noticed the recycling of surgical masks and we’ve seen different pictures on social media, and we therefore say that this is criminal,” she said. “We’re calling on the National Police Service (NPS), Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS), National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) and other relevant government agencies to come and take action on those who are recycling masks and selling them to unsuspecting Kenyans.” Dr. Mwangangi also warned liquor shop owners from turning their businesses into drinking dens following the closure of bars, reminding them that they are only licences for take away services. She said that those found drinking in such establishments will be arrested and the businesses shut down. “We’re witnessing another unbecoming phenomenon where people are assuming that using a face mask alone can beat this virus,” added the CAS. “We’ve seen cases where people are walking around not observing social distancing and feeling that the face mask is enough. Fellow Kenyans, the face mask only confers about 50% protection, so we still require you to observe the interventions we’ve put in place.” She further stated: “We have also noted that people are producing all manner of letters of authority to be able to move in and out of restricted areas. It is important for people to note that nobody has the authority to clear anybody to move out of these areas other than the Ministry of Interior.” – citizen.co.ke
