Pastor Ng’ang’a mocks Kenya’s preparation to deal with Coronavirus
By Vincent Kejitan | March 14th 2020
Neno Evangelism Centre founder Pastor James Ng’ang’a has
expressed his doubts over Kenya’s ability to fight the Coronavirus.
Through a video that has been doing rounds on the web, the
preacher said it was ironic that Kenya claims to be prepared to fight the virus
yet some of the world’s superpowers are struggling to contain it.
"Kenya has said that it is prepared to deal with the
disease. Are you better than America? Hold your horses.
“Other countries that have experienced it say they have not
yet figured it out," Ng'ang'a stated.
Adding: “You claim to be prepared, have you dealt with
cancer? HIV & AIDS? Kidney failure?"
On the government’s directive on self-quarantine, Ng’ang’a
said it may not be effective especially if the virus is already out there.
“May God help us. I hear it kills even doctors…Chinese
doctors. Let alone doctors from my village…it will wipe them all out," he
Kenya reported its first case of the Coronavirus on Friday
and Health CS Mutahi Kagwe said the patient, a 27-year-old lady had landed in
the country on March 5,2020.
Speaking during a presser in Nairobi, Kagwe also rubbished
claims that Africans cannot contract COVID-19.
“There has been this misguided notion that you can’t get
coronavirus because (you’re black). The lady is 27 years and she is black,”
said the CS.
When questioned whether the lady was screened at the
airport, Kagwe stated that she was screened at all the airports she passed
through but did not show any symptoms.
“The lady travelled from Ohio through Chicago through
London, and finally landed Nairobi. In all these places she was screened.
“Even in Nairobi, she was screened but all the while she was
fine. She didn’t display any symptoms,” he said.
Adding: “We have done all the contact tracing and have all the names including the people who sat next to her on the flights she took.”
