Submission on the situation of indigenous populations in the Republic of Kenya during the COVID-19 pandemic

Kenya Human Rights Commission position’s with respect to the management and response of COVID -19 is that although the National Government and County Governments have come up with effective measures to prevent, manage and control the spread of COVID-19, such measures have not taken into consideration the interests of the minority and marginalized groups. As such the actions of the national and county governments seem to be in contravention of the inclusivity threshold contemplated in Art. 27 as read with Art. 54,56,174 and 232 of the Constitution of Kenya. They also do not have regards for human rights in the formulation and implementation of social and economic policies as envisaged in Articles 10 and 19 of the Constitution.
