Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta says his country needs ‘fiscal space’ amid the COVID-19 crisis

“‘Coronavirus is mainly a health issue, and our key focus is ensuring that we keep our people safe,’ he said. ‘But this is also an economic crisis because it has resulted in some key sectors hugely affected by lockdowns. We were forced to close our airspace, which affected tourism, a very critical part of our economy.'”
