Security officers in Suba South Sub County have warned some area residents against defying the government directives against holding large gathering and church functions in a bid to prevent the spread of corona virus in the country.
Concern has been raised by a section of the residents that social gatherings especially Merry-go-rounds and church functions were being conducted in various homes in Nyatambe area of Owich sub location despite the ban on such meetings.
Speaking to KNA, the area Deputy County Commissioner (DCC) Joseph Maina regretted that they have received complaints from members of the public that there were groups of women in Nyatambe area who have defied
the government directives and were still holding Merry-go-rounds in various homes in the region.
Maina warned that they would not allow a group of people to defy the government order aimed at combating the spread of coronavirus in the country.
At the same time, Maina told the women to obey all the directives and desist from holding such meetings saying they have laid down strategies that could ensure door to
door patrols and anybody found holding meetings will be arrested and prosecuted.
The DCC further revealed that they have information that some religious leaders in the area were also holding church functions in homesteads after the government suspended all religious functions to help in reducing the spread of coronavirus.
He warned that any religious leader found violating the
order would face full force of the law.
He urged the residents to obey the government’s directives and stay at home to avoid spread of the deadly virus.
