Do we have Covid-19 in Kenya? Was it a scam that was meant to enrich the few in the government of Kenya?
Did Covid-19 start in Wuhan China as a virus but landed in Kenya as a corruption scandal? Who are the few individuals who have become billionaires as s result of Covid-19?
Since the scandal involving billions of shillings hit KEMSA, the number of new Covid-19 cases in Kenya has been dropping. In the past few days, the country has been recording sometimes less than 50 cases.
The Covid-19 curve seems to be flattening. According to a section of Kenyans, the curve is being flattened “manually” because the pipes that were bringing in cash to be looted have run dry.
Kenyans are no longer interested in the daily briefs on Covid-19. Health CS Mutahi Kagwe and his choir members have been talking to themselves. Kenyans are tired and seem to have moved on.
People are no longer putting on masks, washing their hands, and sanitizing like before. They seem to have borrowed a leaf from President John Pombe Magufuli of Tanzania who, with his people chose to forget about Covid-19.
Political rallies are back. Politicians are roaming all over the country like never before. No masks. No social distancing. It is officially the season of words in Kenya.
The economy has been hard hit by the pandemic. The restrictions in place seem to be hurting the poor but favoring the rich. As the poor run from Covid-19, the rich are reaping big.
Why did President Uhuru Kenyatta extend the curfew for 30 more days? Was it necessary? Even the police got tired and let the Kenyans roam freely. After all, at that time of the night, Covid-19 is supposed to roam the streets as Kenyans sleep. Right?
The point here is simple. President Uhuru Kenyatta should just open up the country completely and let us forget about this “thing.”
