Uhuru Kenyatta, First Lady, Mutahi Kagwe, CS Fred Matiang'i and Others Finally Vaccinated

Kenyan Head of State president Uhuru Kenyatta has finally led the nation by taking the novel Corona virus vaccine live on camera.

President Uhuru Kenyatta together with senior members of the government took the vaccine minutes after delivering the State of the nation address.

Among others vaccinated is the Cabinet Secretary in charge of the Ministry of Health CS Mutahi Kagwe and his counterpart CS Fred Matiang'i.

Others are the Kilifi county governor and the interfaith council chairperson Bishop Muheria all who accompanied His Excellency the president at the official presidential podium in State House.

Earlier, President Uhuru Kenyatta had directed his entire Cabinet and Executive office to get vaccinated against coronavirus.

This was confirmed by the Chief of Staff in the Office of the President, Nzioka Waita, who said it was vital to lead by example.

The National Emergency Response Committee (NERC) on Coronavirus is said to have advised the president to lock down the five counties as one of the “serious considerations” to reduce further spread of the virus.

Sources said the growing alarm over the rapid spread of the new, more infectious Covid variant has put the government under pressure to introduce harsher restrictions in Nairobi and the other four counties.
