Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala on Tuesday asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to re-open places of worship but under strict guidelines of social distancing.

The senator argued that the country is need of some spiritual nourishment and since some eateries were given the go-ahead to resume business, churches, mosques and temples should also be considered.

“Let us resume other activities including opening churches and mosques because praying together plays a big part in the spiritual nourishment of our people.

"They can observe all the directives, including sitting 1.5 metres apart and limiting the maximum number of church services that can be held in one day,” he opined.

Adding: "Surely, if you can trust a drunkard with following the safety regulations for Covid-19, how can we deny the same for worshippers?”

Last week, Digital Strategist Dennis Itumbi shared a similar message saying it is harder to put on masks in restaurants as compared to places of worship.

“Churches and mosques should be re-opened. We have already allowed markets& restaurants with a BAR component.

“In a restaurant & bar the masking requirement is HARDER to maintain because of eating & drinking,” he opined.

Further stating: “In church and mosques it is far much easier to observe ALL rules! My View.”
