Covid-19: Uhuru opts against lockdown – VIDEO

Published

on

President Uhuru Kenyatta has extended the nationwide dusk-to-dawn curfew for 30 more days.

Speaking on Monday afternoon at State House, Nairobi, the president asked Kenyans to be realistic as the state cannot police everyone.

ABNORMAL TIMES

“It is time for everyone to get realistic, as parents, as brothers and sisters we need to look around and ask ourselves what is my responsibility to those around me and those I care about. Government cannot police the morality of its citizens who must have responsibility to each other. We cannot have a policeman to police every home,” President Kenyatta said.

In the televised address, the Head of State televised address urged citizens to speak up and report those who refuse to obey.

“We are living in abnormal times and countries with citizens who have taken a lax attitude have suffered and let us not think we are immune,” the president said.

He said that no one wants to mourn friends and family who would have survived were it not for our actions.

FATALITY RATE

“The power, is in our hands. We are the ones who have the power to save. 280 Kenyans have lost their lives and there will be more the only question is whether we shall emerge with low numbers of death or we are going to suffer a catastrophe. The harsh reality is that we are at war with an invisible enemy and in war no mercy shall be shown on either side,” the head of state said.

The president also noted that it is the low rate of fatality that is giving Kenyans false comfort that the pandemic is not serious.

“Those are the people who have interpreted the de-escalation of the measures we took to take as a green-light to pay no heed to authorities. Their reckless actions endanger them and those around them,” he said.

The President said citizens should hold each other accountable.

“If someone enters your shop, and you own the business, if he has no mask, insist that they wear one,” he said.

SURGING NUMBERS

President Kenyatta also said no person is special, adding that everyone can get the disease.

During his July 6 presidential address when he lifted the cessation of movement order in the counties of Nairobi, Mombasa and Mandera, President Kenyatta urged Kenyans to exercise Covid-19 prevention measures.

In readiness to deal with the surging numbers of Covid-19, the president had earlier on directed County governments to have at least a 300-bed capacity in isolation centers.

On Monday the president said that the Ministry of Health will develop a protocol to retain retired ICU staff and physicians to deal with Covid-19 cases in the counties.

Government institutions, including stadia, upon designations as a public health facility shall be availed to the MoH for purposes of quarantine and treatment centres.

More reactions from her fans include;

queen_d16 Love has become complicated. If you was raised by both parents in the house, why would you want your kids to be raised by a single parent? Ego is what makes us break up most times and have excuses like we are not compatible or never meant to be! Wouldn’t it be nice if we never had kids with a knowledge of we will anyway not be together in the near future???? Just a thought.

abdulradii I’d also say much but let me just say…Now I know! A woman worst enemy is a woman!!

1234dace Forever is not a promise!

‘It hasn’t hit me yet,’ Shix Kapienga talks about being fired for her radio job

Published

on

Media personality and actor Wanjiku Karanja known by her the street moniker Shix Kapienga has spoken about how she found out she had lost her job at Hot 96.

Speaking to Adelle Onyango on her latest podcast, Legally Clueless, Shix detailed how her work life was like from the beginning all the way to when she was let go from her radio gig.

“I took up a job for reggae, not because I knew reggae music, but I told God, this is an opportunity that has been given to me, can I do it? Yes, I can. I was like, I don’t know anything about reggae. I did not know. I learnt, and I was good at it and I became good at it and I would learn every day. I made it my job to learn and I did. I think it took me a few months and I was good at it. I made a few blunders on the radio and on-air, I did a couple but I managed and that is why I was on the radio for 7 years.”

Shix explained that her zeal to work on the radio was dwindling.

“At the beginning of this year, when I went back to work, I was actually from leave, I had come from visiting my sister (in France). I was too frustrated in 2019, and come this year I was going to start afresh, but when the D-Day for me going back to work came, I was like can I extend my leave? I even called my boss and asked. and she was like it is about time you came back to work.”

She added,

“I went back to work and I was like, do I really need to be here? I’m I giving my all, are my bosses okay. it was not good because I was jumping from show to show, I was losing relevance on my show, since July I was on people’s shows not on my show.”

She continued,

“I wanted everything to be perfect, I did not want to be blamed for something going wrong I felt like I was not good enough for it there are times I would get sick… I used to have migraines and my voice would go. Only to find out it was tension and stress. I had lost weight. I started having panic attacks. I was panicking I couldn’t do anything, I was shaking.”

She later went to work and that is when she learned that she had been let go.

Shix said, “To date, it hasn’t hit me yet that it happened. I’m thankful that a girl raised in Kangemi has gone on to rub shoulders with influential people who have come to be good friends.”
