The Kenyan government has reduced the number of guests allowed to attend weddings to 50 over rising coronavirus (COVID-19) cases.
The reduction comes three months after President Uhuru Kenyatta increased the number of guests allowed at weddings to 100 as he eased restrictions, but stricter new guidelines were announced on Thursday.
Kenya’s Inter-Faith Council said the food at weddings will only be served to the parents and siblings of the marrying couple.
Funerals are also subject to new restrictions – no more than 100 guests are permitted to attend; food is banned, and ceremonies may not last longer than an hour.
Church services in Kenya are now limited to a maximum of 90 minutes.
The inter-faith council’s chairman, Anthony Muheria, was last week treated for coronavirus at a hospital in the capital, Nairobi.
