Do not vent out your stress on children, wives — Health CS Mutahi Kagwe tells Kenyans
By Vincent Kejitan | April 15th 2020
Health CS Mutahi Kagwe has urged Kenyans to handle stress
levels responsibly and to avoid domestic violence.
Speaking during a COVID-19 update on Wednesday, the CS said
there was an increase in the number of cases of domestic violence as a result
of the inconveniences caused by Coronavirus and called upon the clergy and
other professionals to offer guidance and counselling.
“This is a new normal and we will face challenges we have
not faced before.
“Let us not vent out our anger on family members,” said
This comes as the country announced that nine more people
had tested positive for Coronavirus, bringing the number to 225.
All nine cases are Kenyan nationals and none of them has a
history of travel.
Further, they were not in quarantine centres and the CS reiterated
that the country is not safe yet despite the low numbers recorded.
“We are not out of danger. Even the countries that have been
hit hard by the virus recorded numbers similar to ours before the situation got
“We must continue to take the necessary precautions,” said
Out of the nine new cases, five are from Nairobi and four
are from Mombasa
The Ministry also announced 12 recoveries taking the number
to 53, while one more person succumbed to the virus, bringing the number of
fatalities to 10.
