| Apr 30th 2020 | 2 min read
Digital Strategist Dennis Itumbi on Wednesday suggested that
the government should also re-open churches and mosques after giving a number
of eateries the go-ahead to resume operations.
Itumbi said it was 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.
Adding: “In church and mosques it is far much easier to
observe ALL rules! My View.”
Earlier this week, the government gave some eateries and
restaurants the go-ahead to resume operations but only after they had complied
with a set of measures.
The restaurants were instructed to ensure social distancing and
screening of customers at entry points.
All employees were also instructed to take a COVID-19 test
to ensure they do not pass the virus to customers.
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko also opined on the matter saying
the country needs prayers to fight Coronavirus and hit out at those who were
playing politics with lives of Kenyans.
“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.
