Food at weddings in Kenya to be served to only parents and siblings of marrying couple due to coronavirus

The number of guests allowed to attend weddings in Kenya has been reduced to 50 because of rising coronavirus cases.

Kenya’s Inter-Faith Council said food at weddings will only be served to the parents and siblings of the marrying couple.

President Uhuru Kenyatta had in August increased the number of guests allowed in weddings to 100 as he eased restrictions, but stricter new guidelines have been announced.

Funerals are also subject to new restrictions – no more than 100 guests are permitted to attend, food is banned, and ceremonies may not last longer than an hour.

Church services in Kenya are now limited to a maximum of 90 minutes.
