– Health CS Mutahi Kagwe urged Kenyans to stop entertaining politicians by attending their meetings which had been outlawed due to spread of COVID-19
– The CS said Kenyans would be left alone to suffer if they contracted the disease while in those meetings since the politicians would be nowhere to sympathise with them
– Kagwe also urged football lovers to observe containment measures while watching matches in social places
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has asked Kenyans to desist from attending political gatherings in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Mutahi said no Kenyan was attending the gatherings at a gunpoint but willingly and thus asked the attendees to stop entertaining the politicians.
Speaking on Sunday, June 21, the CS said the virus was infecting everyone irrespective of their political affiliations and there was need to avoid the gatherings because if one fell sick with the virus, they would be entirely alone.
“No matter who calls you for a gathering, do not go. Eventually, when you are unwell, and in the hospital and your family is suffering, I guarantee you that whoever had called you will not be with you,” Kagwe said.
He further said no political party was above law and as such, there were no political meetings allowed in the country since the gatherings were exacerbating the spread of COVID-19.
Kagwe said the same applied to football fanatics and urged them to observe containment measures while watching football.
“You do so by social distancing yourself and especially by wearing a mask,” he said.Loading...
