CS Kagwe Rebukes Rogue Political Leaders for Criticizing the Kenyan Government over the Coronavirus Pandemic in Kenya
The number of coronavirus positive cases in Kenya has risen to 42 after 4 more people tested positive on Sunday March 29, 2020.
According to CS Kagwe, the four new COVID-19 positive cases constitute three foreigners and one Kenyan.
CS Kagwe further added that the Kenyan Government has embarked on mass testing for all travelers who arrived in the Country last week and were placed under mandatory quarantine.
The tests will be based on arrival dates. Those who test positive will be taken into mandatory quarantine in Government approved quarantine facilities.
CS Kagwe appealed to Kenyans to treat the coronavirus pandemic as a social responsibility rather than a government affair.
7, 000 people in Mandatory quarantine?
CS Kagwe has also issued a stern warning against rogue political leaders who are busy spreading rumors about the COVID-19.
One political leader for instance pointed an accusatory finger at the Kenyan Government.
According to the MP, Over 7, 000 people are in mandatory quarantine but the Kenyan Government is not willing to tell Kenyans the truth.
“For the record, there are only 250 people under mandatory quarantine in 14 quarantine facilities across Kenya,” said CS Kagwe.
CS Kagwe said that anyone spreading rumors about coronavirus shall face the wrath of the law, politician or not.
Expansion of facilities
Kagwe further hailed the private sector and donors for supporting the Kenyan Government in containing the spread of the Coronavirus.
He also appealed to the Counties to map out schools that can be used as hospitals in case the Coronavirus pandemic gets out of hand.
CS Kagwe had one simple request to all Kenyans, “let us take advantage of the current situation to contain the spread of the virus and avoid ugly coronavirus scenarios.”
