A Nyeri Church on Spot for Flouting Covid-19 Protocols Despite Surging Cases in the County

Despite the surge in Covid-19 cases in Kenya, Devotees from across the country seem not to learn from their past mistakes as they continue to flout Covid-19 measures put in place by the government in a move to control the spread of the virus.

Through a live church service, African Inland Pentecostal Church from Mweiga, Mwireri in Nyeri country completely decided to go against the governments ban against having a large church gathering with the Third Wave of Corona virus hiting the country.

Through Mzee Kiengei Facebook page, who is a presenter at Kameme Fm, AIPCA church in Mweiga is seen conducting an alter consecration ceremony in which believers are packed in full capacity without observing social distancing directive with some of them having no masks and those with them, not wearing them properly.

Currently, Nyeri county has recorded 1,615 Covid-19 cases out of the 145,184 positive cases confirmed in the country with Nyeri recording 35 cases in the last 24 hours.

During the recent State of the Nation Address, President Kenyatta banned public gatherings that brought a large mass of people in one area.

However, his main areas were on five counties whose Covid-19 cases had shot up at an alarming speed in a span of few months

The government banned church gatherings Nairobi, Machakos, Nakuru and Kajiado counties terming them as the red zones limiting them to 15 worshippers as the country recorded its highest number of COVID-19 deaths since the pandemic started last year and amid a surge of positive cases.

More arrest continue to be made on curfew and Covid-19 regulations floaters by law enforcers. In Laikipia county, 40 revellers were arrested at the Laikipia-Meru boarder whole clubbing past curfew hours which is 9:00 PM for the counties outside the five red zones.

As this happens, in the last 24 hours Kenya had reported 19 more deaths and 1,030 new infections, out of a sample of 8,316.

The government continues to call upon Kenyans to continue observing the regulations and shun from their ignorant nature to prevent more spread and deaths.
