Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has revealed that he contracted coronavirus in December 1, 2020.
Speaking on TV47’s Morning Café show on Thursday, the youthful lawmaker said that he battled COVID-19 for two weeks.
While trying to convince President Uhuru Kenyatta to lift the nationwide dusk-to-dawn COVID-19 curfew, MP Babu Owino said the virus is not a serious threat to the young.
“It is not a serious threat to the young. Young Kenyans should be left to develop the nation. The moments we [young Kenyans] are not going to jobs, we are stuck financially,” said Babu. “Let’s open up the country, let things move on as usual but take keen measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.”
President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to address the nation on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday. Kenyans will be hoping that Uhuru will end the 10 pm- 4 am curfew placed to curb the spread of the novel virus.
The Council of Governors (CoG) on Wednesday called upon Uhuru to ban political gatherings for a period of 30 days, with the country fully in its third wave of infections.
