Market Milimani ward MCA Seth Kanga has called upon Governor Anyang Nyong’o to shut down Garissa Lodge for fear of spread of COVID-19 pandemic in the lakeside city.
Kanga, popularly known as Adui says Garissa Lodge is a kin to Eastleigh in Nairobi which has recorded the highest number of people infected by the virus in the Capital City.
He says the people of Kisumu have questioned why Garissa Lodge is in operation at a time most trading centers including Kibuye have been closed.
He says Garissa Lodge is busy teaming up with huge traffic of people on a daily basis.
Speaking in Kisumu during the launch of a call centre by Governor Nyong’o, the MCA says quick closure of the market will cushion the people of Kisumu from the spread of the virus.
Kisumu is yet to record any single case of Corona virus with Nyong’o announcing that the county has got no testing kits.
Kanga called upon the county security team to move with speed and ensure the market is closed for the betterment of the people.
