MP Laughs Off President Uhuru Kenyatta's Efforts in Curbing the Spread of Coronavirus

Kimilili MP Hon.Didmus Barasa has dismissed the government's efforts in curbing the spread of coronavirus.While speaking to journalists at his Nasianda home in Kimilili Constituency,the MP criticised the government for allowing foreign tourists to enter the country freely.He wondered how the lockdowns and cessation of movements shall reduce the spread of coronavirus with foreigners from Covid-19 hit countries interacting freely with the locals.

"Instead of taking these foreigners in forced quarantine for 14 days like in other countries, the government has allowed them to move freely just because of their skin colours.The president must be told that Kenyans are suffering for the mistakes that are not theirs," the MP said.

The MP explained that during the Covid-19 period, he had to be subjected to forceful testing,quarantine and retesting at the ports of entry when he visited several countries.

He advised the government to do away with punitive tax laws and some Covid-19 prevention protocols that were weighing down on Kenyans.He further regretted that in President Uhuru's speech in Labour Day celebrations at Statehouse, he was speaking of the possibilities of closing down the country again if the Covid-19 horror persists.

"It is so horrifying to hear the president threatening to lockdown the country if the Covid-19 situation in the country persists.Businesses are closing and many Kenyans are losing their jobs. It is becoming unbearable for most of us.That should never be an option again," the MP implored.
