The High Court has declared unconstitutional a decision by the NSAC to ban all public gatherings for the next 60 days. Justice Mrima says the Covid-19 containment measures on public gatherings and restriction of movement ratified by Cabinet are not only unlawful but it is also a violation of the constitution to direct police officers on how to discharge their duties.
