President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday 29th June 2021 addressed the nation on the fight against COVID-19 pandemic by the government.
During the address done from State House in Nairobi, the President sounded a number of measures that the government has taken to curb the spread of the novel virus.
Among the measures announced by the Head of State during his address was a further 60-day ban on all political gatherings, which are said to be super spreaders of the virus.
Only a day after President Uhuru's address, Deputy President William Ruto's brigade has taken Gachie Town, Kihara Ward, Kiambaa Constituency by a storm to drum up support for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidate John Wanjiku ahead of the upcoming mini polls on 15th July 2021.
The move by the Hustler brigade to continue with the Campaigns in Kiambaa despite the ban on political gatherings has sparked a series of mixed reactions from Kenyans,most of whom have condemned the DP Ruto faction for disregarding the directive by President Uhuru.
