Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has slammed Kenyans in his latest coronavirus media briefing.
While addressing a press conference at Afy House on Tuesday March 24, CS Kagwe noted that Kenyans are indisciplined and difficult people.
The seemingly angry CS said that the level of indiscipline being shown by Kenyans will really cost the country.
He called for responsibility among Kenyans as the country braves to fight COVID-19.
“Kenyans are very indiscipline and it will cost us. We want responsibility among citizens, Keep your kids home..you people of the media need to tell them,” he said.
He said Kenyans have been warned against contracting the disease but they feign ignorance.
“It is a grievous mistake. For us to give your child then you go exposing him or her. Then you call us and say serikali saidia.. this is the time you need to saidia yourself not the government..,” he said.
“Children were not sent for a holiday but for protection. Do not tell us ‘serikali saidia’. It won’t work…”
He further warned the 14-seater matatus who carry eight passengers and revert to their usual behaviour when the police are not present.
“If we tell you that a matatu should carry eight, do exactly that..when you do it because you can see the police then later when the police are absent, you carry more people, it is sad,” he said.
“….it is difficult to understand ..are you trying to kill yourself and the people in the matatu..”
He said that the government will announce further measures tomorrow Wednesday March 25.
