DP Ruto reiterates government’s commitment to help vulnerable Kenyans during the COVID-19 crisis

Deputy President William Ruto has maintained that the government is committed to helping vulnerable Kenyans get through the crisis that has come as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking after distributing food to families in Nacho area where he also inspected the construction of Marengeta Dam, Ruto said that the government was in the process of coming up with a broad-based plan that will facilitate the country’s rapid recovery from the disease.

“Anybody who can afford an extra meal should make it available for their neighbors, for the person next door,” he said on a tour to a farm in Kiambu on Wednesday, “no one expected it, no one planned for it and we doesn’t know what will happen in the near future.”

He added, “We are here for a while as the country. The numbers are going up and therefore, we must be vigilant and adhere to the government’s directives so that we minimize the effects of coronavirus,” said Ruto.

Majority of Kenyans are suffering and struggling to even afford a meal a day since the pandemic began in March.
