Labor Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelugui has asked Kenyans to continue observing the Night Curfew and maintain hygiene and social distance as a way of fighting the coronavirus.
Speaking live on KASSFM this morning, Mr. Chelugui said that the coronavirus pandemic has had adverse effects on the various sectors of the economy.
“The days ahead of us will be very tough. This pandemic has paralyzed tourism, aviation, education and the government has suspended all its development plans to fight this crisis,” he said.
The CS revealed that his ministry has initiated plans with banks to use agents to enable people with special needs such as the elderly to receive government stipends with ease near their homes.
“The challenge we face now is that some beneficiaries are still captured in analog records and have not yet been transferred to digital which will enable us to efficiently transfer funds to the beneficiaries.”
This comes even as complains have arisen with people claiming to have received funds and yet they don’t deserve to be beneficiaries.
