Help the government fight COVID 19, Kenyans told


Kenyans have been urged to rally behind the government in its effort to stop new infections on COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

Archbishop of Kisumu Philip Anyolo says the war on Corona virus should not be left to the government single handedly.

Anyolo who is also the Chairman of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) says everyone in the country must play a role to ensure the country is safe from the global pandemic.

He says the government has made good strides in dealing with the emerging infections.

Speaking to the press in Kisumu when he flagged off food donations to the vulnerable groups, Anyolo says social distancing reflects love which Kenyans should embrace to keep everyone safe from the virus.

He says the church must be in the forefront to assist the government to enforce the directives which have been given out by the ministry of health.

Anyolo says the church should not insist in holding prayers in the houses of warship.

Instead, he says, churches should embrace technology and offer prayers to their congregants through media platforms.
