Marriage services suspended amidst COVID-19 fears

Marriage services at the office of the Attorney General have been suspended after several people flocked the office raising fears over the spread of the COVID-19 disease.

In a statement sent by the Registrar General Mary Njuya, the office said that Kenyans seeking the services were overwhelming and against the rules set by the Health Ministry.

“It was observed that the number of clients who visited Sheria House seeking the same was overwhelming and went against the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health in curbing the spread of COVID-19 virus,” Registrar General Mary Njuya said in a statement.

The office had been partially reopened on May 18, 2020, for selected marriage services.

The Registrar said the services will remain suspended as the office of the Attorney General develops safety strategies in line with government directives
