Matungulu member of parliament Stephen Mule has bashed leaders playing politics in the fight against coronavirus.
Speaking in Machakos Mule stated that the fight against the deadly disease is costing the country billions of money.
Mule who sits in the health committee said that there has never been a disease that needs a lot of money like COVID -19 and the national assembly has been doing all it can to help in the fight against coronavirus.
"As Members of parliament we have put everything in place to ensure we fight this disease and in my lifetime I have not seen an expensive disease like this. I want to urge the entire country to come together and stop politics of money," said Mule.
He said that those bashing Kagwe for the use of sh.1 billion donated by World bank have lost direction.
"To maintain a single health worker on the fronline you require almost sh.50,000 a day to handle a COVID-19 patient. Whatever we can do as parliament we will do it. This is not the time for politics it's time for us to save our people," he said.
Mule also warned bodaboda operators who are used to sneak people from Nairobi county which is experiencing a lockdown.
"I want to assure people of Nairobi we will fight the disease and I want to ask them not to be cheeky with the bodaboda operators. All the Panyaroutes must be closed, please don't imports COVID-19 from Nairobi," he said.
His sentiments were echoed by Machakos Woman representative Joyce Kamene who said that it was the high time for Kenyans to take the disease seriously.
