Anglican church ask Kenyans to aside 10 minutes of prayer daily

The Anglican Church of Kenya has urged Kenyans to set aside 10 minutes daily at 8 pm for payers to seek divine intervention over the coronavirus.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Anglican Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit said the church will be conducting prayers that will be streamed live on social media platforms.

On Tuesday, President Kenyatta declared March 21st as a day for prayer on a day when the Health Ministry confirms the fourth case of the virus in the country.

Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe said that the issue was serious and the government will take all measures to contain the spread of the disease.

“This is a serious matter, we must all take it seriously and observe the set-out regulations of hygiene,” the minister said.

President Kenyatta also warned that businessmen who hike prices of essential commodities will be punished as per the law.

Kenya has also blocked its borders, warning nationalities from the virus-hit countries won’t be allowed in until the situation normalizes.
