- Politicians, being super spreaders of Covid-19, should never have been left out of the priority vaccination list of the frontline staff, says Ruth Gituma.
Coronavirus cells • Redesign police cells to curb the spread of Covid-19, says Richard Kihara. Overcrowding, he adds, creates the right conditions for the rapid transmission of the deadly respiratory disease. Richard is also disgusted with the arrest of people for not wearing face masks and then police put their lives in danger by keeping them in those crowded cells. His contact is email@example.com.
Priority • Politicians, being super spreaders of the coronavirus, should never have been left out of the priority vaccination list of the frontline staff that includes health workers, teachers and security personnel, says Ruth Gituma. She adds: “They speak without wearing face masks, spraying the virus at crowds at their public rallies that do not wear face masks, too.” His contact is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wise move • The intervention by local elders and leaders in Garissa County that led to Abdul Haji being elected unopposed as the senator to succeed his late father Yusuf Haji has saved the country Sh300 million that would have been spent on the mini poll, says Githuku Mungai. “I think this is a wise move as the next General Election is next year.” His contact is email@example.com.
Break-ins • There is a syndicate targeting shops selling mobile phone handsets in Kapsabet Town, says Wilfred Bett. “The loss of millions of shillings through phone shop break-ins is a huge dent in the economy of Nandi County. It’s surprising nobody has been arrested though the stolen phones are traceable.” The latest victim, is a shop near County Hotel. His contact is firstname.lastname@example.org.
NMS • In just a year, Steve Austine Ogony notes, Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) has achieved what the city county government couldn’t do in eight. “Health services, transport, security, environment, sanitation, housing and planning have been improved and jobs created for youth. Its term, which expires next March, should be extended.” His contact is email@example.com.
Have a laudable day, won’t you!
