Muran'ga senator Hon. Irungu Kan'gata has alleged that the government through the ministry of health led by the cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe has been been dishonest in reporting the Covid-19 deaths and infections.
Irungu has stated that those who have been contracting the virus and those who have succumbed to it are more than the numbers being reported daily by the Ministry of Health. Kan'gata stated that even in his own county of Muran'ga, those who have succumbed to the deadly virus are more than what the government has been reporting.
Kan'gata has urged the government to be more serious with the fight against the virus, he has asked the government to divert all the resources meant for the Building Bridges Initiative to the fight against Covid-19. He's appealing for improved vaccination programs, he wants more people to be vaccinated within the shortest time possible.
“I suspect there is a lot of under reporting of COVID-19 in counties. I strongly believe the money we are about to expend on BBI should be taken back and reallocated to fight COVID-19” Irungu stated.
Kan'gata made the statements in a live TV interview with Citizen TV, below is the video:https://twitter.com/citizentvkenya/status/1386529164476440579?s=09
