President Kenyatta said there was need for the fishermen to be allowed to fish at night.
Fishermen who talked to Nation.co.ke expressed their gratitude towards the President’s order to have the curfew lifted.
Mr Famau lauded President Kenyatta for the decision saying fishermen will now carry on with their activities and fully enjoy their freedom at sea.
He said the move would give the fishermen in the area a break from constant harassment by police.
