Like-minded people in Kiambu community have come out in various styles to help the Government flatten the curve of Covid-19 infections.
Leaders who are revered have taken it upon themselves to sensitize members of the public on the importance of adhering to precautionary protocols instituted by the Ministry of Health to curb the rising numbers of people contracting the coronavirus disease.
Pastor Samuel Macharia Wairegi of Dynamic church, while addressing Kiamwangi residents in Gatundu North advised parents to take care of their children so that they do not contract the coronavirus disease from their associates.
“It is the responsibility of every parent to monitor their children and reciprocate the care they received from their parents when they were growing up.”
The pastor through his caravan that traversed Kiamwangi trading centre reiterated the need for children to stay at home as they require parental guidance and monitoring.
“Wearing masks, observing social distance, sanitizing and hand washing is a necessity that must be observed by all – both children and adults,” reiterated the pastor who attracted the crowd by his unique speech.
With mounted speakers on a stationary motor vehicle, the pastor first prays for the nation, then goes ahead and removes his mask so that his message can be absorbed by those who pay attention to his message.
“Hearing the voice of the anointed one we shall have peace as the hand of the lord is upon him,” the pastor said while urging Kenyans to continue fighting corona as it is real as he pleads, “I have dedicated myself to enlighten Kenyans and the world at large that there is hope if we observe the preventive measures.”
The Coordinator of the National Torch of peace culture initiative took up the entire Saturday to tour and talk to the business community in Githurai.
Mr. Washington Njuguna Kanyuru aka Wamuchuthe sensitized the boda boda riders who conspicuously were defying wearing their masks the proper way.
Wamuchuthe talked to the market sellers and the buyers at Githurai main and mini markets who mill in their hundreds to purchase their groceries from the busy market located along the busy Thika highway.
He echoed the importance of wearing masks while selling their groceries and farm produce to instill health confidence. He also demonstrated the proper way of hand washing from his portable water carrier that he has been using since he embarked on his sensitization journey.
Donning the colours of the Kenyan flag, the peace ambassador told the congregation who stopped their businesses and gave him an ear that they have an opportunity to remain safe by observing the Ministry of Health protocols so that they may protect themselves, their loved ones and neighbours.
The community coordinator who also participated in sensitizing the community on the clauses of the constitution prior to the promulgation in 2010 reiterated that the Government had invested so much resources in the fight against the pandemic and that the ball was now in the hands of the Kenyans to do their part.
He conducted the sensitization in Kiambu town yesterday and intends to proceed to Githunguri, Juja, Thika, Kiambaa, Kabete, Lari and Limuru. Mr.Wamuchuthe says he will then advance to other counties.
