Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya has shocked Kenyans this morning with his new agenda of building a wall around Kakamega county as a way to ensure the county is free from the novel virus.
The governor has said that the county has already allocated Ksh 500 million to cater for the entire construction process.
Speaking today morning at his county headquarters, Oparanya has said that the logistics are currently underway and the construction process is set to begin as early as Thursday this week.
NAIROBI, Kenya Mar 16 – Kakamega County residents will have to bury their relatives on the same day they die after the county government shut down all mortuaries.
Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has also closed markers in measures aimed at minimising crowds in the wake of coronavirus.
Kenya has so far confirmed three cases, with more than 30 people on quarantine.
“We have also said that all bodies at our mortuary here, the owners should come and pick them and make a quick burial,” he said.
Going forward, he said, “we are not going to take any bodies to the mortuary, we will instead facilitate the communities to make sure they dispose off the bodies as quickly as possible.”
