Uhuru To Address The Nation: What Should He Say?

By Juma / Published November 4, 2020 | 7:55 am





The Son of Jomo, President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to address the nation today (November, Wednesday 4, 2020) on the way forward on how to handle the surge in the Covid-19 infections.

There are fears that President Uhuru Kenyatta might extent curfew hours, shut down bars and restaurants, ban political rallies, and restrict movement to and from some counties.

The fact is President Uhuru Kenyatta himself, has played a major role in breaking the laws that he himself sets. Talk of hypocrisy. He has been holding massive political rallies with zero social distancing and with people without masks.

Deputy President William Ruto is another master spreader of Covid-19 through massive political rallies. For them to behave as if they just realized that there is a spike in Covid-19 is not only ignorance but foolishness too.

Here is what President Uhuru Kenyatta should do. First, ban all political rallies including those gatherings to push for the BBI report. He should not ban rallies only for him and his political brother Raila Odinga to start touring the country for BBI.

It will be useless for the President to take hours holding consultations, give a boring speech phrased with “Fellow Kenyans” and there, ban rallies only for him to start leading them. He should mean what he says and say what he means for once.

Gatherings in the church should be reduced or people made to worship from their homes. Kenyans seem to have started “tempting God” by being reckless in Church and believing that the Man Above is watching over them and will make them immune to Covid-19.

The President should address the issue of our kids in school. He should not listen to sycophants like Professor George Magoha whose brain seems to go into sleeping mode as soon as he opens his mouth. He should see the reality on the ground.

The truth is, our kids are not safe in school. Already, more than 70 of them have tested positive for Covid-19. More than 30 teachers have tested positive too. George Magoha still insists that our kids are safer in schools than with their parents.

Bars should not be shut but the police should make sure that guidelines set by the Ministry of Health are adhered to. We shouldn’t punish businesses for the ignorance of a few. Clubs and bars that allow massive crowds without following the rules should be shut.

There is no need to shut down restaurants. Most restaurants and hotels are doing well in observing the guidelines. There is no need for the restriction of movement because the virus is already fully spread. What the country needs is massive testing.

The directive to make the wearing of masks mandatory should be enforced as a matter of life and death. Foolish Kenyans who refuse to wear masks while in public should be arrested, fined, and be given a free mask.

What would you like President Uhuru Kenyatta to address?
