The president had earlier today directed that all senior government officials take the jab to increase the confidence of the public. With this latest move, it seems that the president has restored his confidence in the people of Kenya towards the AstraZeneca Vaccine.
Uhuru has directed that everyone above the age of 58 to take the mandatory vaccine to curb the spread. This means that the spread of the vaccine will be stopped a bit after over 1400 people were found to be positive yesterday and over 20 deaths.
