Dagoretti South MP, John Kiarie, has exposed the Government lies about the Coronavirus outbreak in the country, saying Health CS Mutahi Kagwe is just sugarcoating COVID-19 figures and being frugal with the truth.
In his Facebook Post, the legislator called on the country to prepare for the worse as it cannot handle the outbreak. He went ahead with his expose’ that there were 7,000 Kenyans who flew in within the last 5 days that were currently isolated at Lenana School and Kinyanjui Technical Institute.
“We have 7,000 Kenyans in quarantine who arrived back between Wednesday and Sunday.”
“In Dagoretti South Constituency, we are hosting them at Lenana School and Kinyanjui Tech.” Said Kiarie
Venting on Twitter and Facebook, KJ told Uhuru and Health CS Mutahi Kagwe to stop sugarcoating figures of COVID-19 and tell Kenyans the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
To combat what he referred to as the real situation, he then shared suggestions on how Government should go about ensuring the safety of its citizens.
“Kenya Government must forthwith communicate the gravity of the real situation without sugarcoating anymore.”
“Let Kenyans know how bad things are about to get.”
“They will be better equipped to make personal decisions and put up with government decrees, measures and restrictions,” the Dagoretti South MP recommended.
The MP urged the National Government to set up isolation centres across the country that could host thousands, adding that county governments were not equipped to handle what could potentially come next.
“Kenya National Government must set up massive Isolation Centres around the country; over 4,000-bed isolation centres in Kasarani, Nyayo and City Stadiums in Nairobi.”
“Over 3,000-bed Isolation centres in Mombasa and similar centres countrywide.”
The MP claimed that numbers announced by Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe numbers were skewed as he could only announce results from the limited testing kits available.
“Kenya currently has an acute shortage of testing kits, so the country cannot adequately test how many of these new arrivals are currently positive!”
“We currently do not know the exact number of positive cases in the country.”
“Moderate estimates are that by May, Kenya will be reporting in excess of 10,000,” KJ, as he is popularly known stated.
His explosve rant came a day after CS Kagwe announced 7 more cases of patients who tested positive for Covid-19, bringing the total tally to 38.
