In a statement by the CBK stated that the directive took effect from October 1 and will end on September 30, 2022.

The directive was made in line with an announcement by President Uhuru Kenyatta during the Mashujja day celebrations. The head of state noted that the move was one of the measures that he was taking to revamp the Kenyan economy from the effects of the global pandemic.
