Just like most services offered in Kenya, The Attorney Generals office has decided to suspend all marriage they offer.
According to the office, they are afraid of the possible spread of coronavirus given the huge numbers that were visiting them.
The office was earlier on closed but was reopened days ago. However, clients hoping to get married flocked the office. They decided to suspend the services until they are sure that they are not posing danger to the people or even to themselves.
So this means that anyone hoping to get married at the AG’s office at the moment will have to wait until they decide otherwise.
“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.
According to her, marriage services will remain suspended until further notice.
Church weddings, as well as garden weddings, were also suspended earlier on after the government ordered people to avoid social gatherings. However, people have been holding virtue weddings online and sharing the ceremony live on social media.
