Uhuru’s Easter message to Kenyans: ‘We must come together by staying apart’
President Uhuru Kenyatta has reiterated Kenya’s resolve to fight the coronavirus pandemic saying there may be difficult times ahead but suffering is temporary.
In a statement on Friday, the President said though the Easter period is often celebrated with close friends and family, this year is different due to the preventative measures effected for safety purposes.
“The circumstances under which we find ourselves during this year’s Easter holiday are unusual. Our world is going through a period of intense trial brought about by the COVID-19 crisis. We have had to adopt unique measures which we hope will bring an end to the suffering caused by this global pandemic,” he said.
The Head of State further commended researchers, doctors, nurses, clinical officers, emergency personnel and security teams who have been on the front lines of the fight against coronavirus.
He said they have tirelessly given their resources, skills and expertise to help Kenyans get through this difficult period.
President Kenyatta reiterated the importance of observing good personal hygiene by washing hands and observing social distancing in communities.
“Today we are in a storm. We have refused to give up and we will see the end of the Covid-19 pandemic in Kenya. Though these actions are personal, by doing them together we can all do our part in defeating this disease,” his statement reads.
