Churches and mosques should also be re-opened — Mike Sonko
By Vincent Kejitan | April 28th 2020
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has spoken after the government’s
move to allow the sale of alcohol in selected restaurants.
Sonko stated that the country needs prayers to fight
Coronavirus and hit out at those who were playing politics with lives of
“Kenya is a God-fearing Country, it needs prayers especially
during this difficult time when we are fighting the deadly Covid-19 pandemic
while others are playing politics with the lives of Kenyans.
“Since all the throat sanitizing dens, hotels and restaurants
have been allowed to operate starting from tomorrow, churches and Mosques
should also be reopened so we may continue to pray for God's guidance and
Allah's protection against the coronavirus pandemic until it’s defeated in the
mighty name of Jesus,” he wrote.
This is after the government’s move to allow partial
reopening of eateries and restaurants.
It was stated that alcohol shall only be sold with a meal
and will only be served to customers waiting to be served or thirty minutes
after the meal.
This directive left many Kenyans confused as they lamented
that government was about to undo all the hard work that has been done to
contain the virus.
Due to the virus, schools and churches were closed, the
number of passengers in PSVs was reduced and there was cessation of travel in a
number of counties.

Bars were also closed since it was said that most customers
were not observing social distancing hence putting themselves at risk.
Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Monday said that Kenya was
learning from other countries and would slowly get back to her feet with time.
