What the Government Plans to Do to Kenyan Civil Servants Who Have Not Been Vaccinated

If you are a civil servant in Kenya, you have until the end of August to have vaccinated. The government of Kenya will issue disciplinary action to those that defy this legislation. According to medical report, the increasing number of coronavirus cases is due to ignorance from public servants.

The hiking numbers of coronavirus cases has alarmed the government forcing implementation of new strategies and measures to try and curb these increasing numbers.

According to Kinyua's memo this week,"Some public servants have deliberately avoided getting vaccinated so that they can stay away from work under the guise of working from home."

He added,"Those who have not had a first jab by August 23 will be treated as discipline cases and appropriate action taken against them."

The government is already thinking of not paying those that disobey this command as a penalty. Targeting the teachers, security sector, and core service workers designated in various government offices.

On Thursday there will be a debate in parliament on how to deny people accessibility to private and public services if they are not vaccinated or lack negative coronavirus certificate. It is not yet open where the proposed restrictions would apply but what can be anticipated is Kenyans last minute rush to get their first jabs.

With only three percent of the population having being vaccinated,the roll out vaccines still awaits show up.East African nations have registered more than 213,000 corona virus infections, 4,211 have been succumbing to the deadly virus.

Even though this is a dangerous virus, do you think it is right for the government to force it's citizens to be vaccinated as a way of preventing the virus from spreading?.
