Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday wished Bishop Margaret Wanjiru a quick recovery after she tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday.

Taking to his Twitter handle, the deputy president said the government will stand those who are receiving treatment and assured Kenyans of the stimulus package put in place to mitigate the economy.

“We are determined to do everything within our God given capabilities to check the spread and defeat Covid-19 and the GoK economic stimulus package will mitigate the economic damage caused. We stand with those being treated. Quick recovery gallant soldier of the Lord Bishop Margaret Wanjiru,” said DP Ruto.

The former Starehe MP and founder of the Jesus Is Alive Ministries is currently in the hospital after she was diagnosed with the disease.

Ruto’s message comes hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta rolled out an 8- point economic stimulus programme to cushion the economy as cases of COVID-19 in the country continue to rise.

During the briefing, Uhuru said a total of Sh53.7billion was injected into different sectors such as education, healthcare and agriculture.

The president also announced 31 new cases of COVID-19 bringing the total number to 1192. So far, a total of 57,650 samples have been tested country wide.
