Former MP defends COVID-19 vaccine, urges Kenyans to get the jab

Former Thika Town MP Alice Ng’ang’a has urged Kenyans to observe the new regulations set the Government to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Ng’ang’a said the third wave of the virus has hit the country with devastating effects saying Kenyans should also take advantage and get vaccinated.

The former MP spoke in Nairobi after receiving the COVID-19 jab which she says will boost her immunity and ability to battle the virus.

She said the vaccine is safe urging Kenyans to ignore negative rumours by those who are opposing the jab.

Meanwhile Businesspersons drawn from Narok town donated foodstuff and sanitary materials worth hundreds of thousands to the Siyiapei children home, in a bid to caution them against the effects of COVID-19.

The prominent traders led by Mr. Simon Ngigi said the items will go a long way in ensuring the children are well provided for during the pandemic.

He called on all Kenyans of goodwill to join hands and support the vulnerable with foodstuff, clothing and sanitary materials so that they can continue living a normal life.

At the same time, Ngigi called on Kenyans to follow the protocols set by the Ministry of Health to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Center manager Stanley Koisamba said they mainly depend on donors and well wishers for food and clothing.

He reiterated the home supports orphans and vulnerable children from the society who are rescued through the church and chiefs office.

Koisamba called on the government to continue giving them food and sanitary materials to sustain the children who have closed school and now are at the center.
