Peace Initiative Kenya chair Dr. Peter Rono has asked Nandi residents and the entire Kenyans to strictly continue upholding Covid-19 protocols for their safety.

Speaking to journalists in Kapsabet town, Rono cited that many Kenyans have decided to flout the protocols not knowing that they are endangering their lives especially when Kenya has recorded cases of the new Corona Virus infection of Omicron which is said to be more dangerous.

“I want to appeal to all Kenyans to strictly adhere to health protocols as Covid-19 is still with us thus we don’t want to lose lives.” Dr Rono said.

He revealed that majority of people in Nandi have stopped wearing their masks and they no longer wash or sanitize their hands which is pausing a serious threat and insisted the need to abide by the Covid-19 protocols diligently.

The peace chair called on all the Matatu drivers and boda boda operators to ensure they put this in practice regularly for safety of their customers and to avoid a spike in the disease.

“Covid-19 spike will lead to a possible lock down of the country if Kenyans will not take precautions, and we don’t want the country to be locked down again thus I appeal to every individual to take the responsibilities and do their part.” He added.

So far Nandi County has lost over 100 people since the inception of Covid-19 pandemic in 2019 majority being the elderly thus there is need for residents to take extra precautions by sticking to Ministry of Health Covid-19 protocols.
