‘I made my peace with God, I was ready to go’ Archbishop Muheria’s Covid-19 story

The Chairperson of the Interfaith Council on Covid-19, Archbishop Antony Muheria has shared intricate details about his experience with Covid-19 saying despite the gravity of his illness he had the will power to fight and stay on.

During an interview, Muheria said his encounter with Covid-19 drew him even closer to God adding that prayer was the only hope for a disease that has no known treatment.

“I had a rosary most of the time in my hand, but I couldn’t pray. I could just hold it. I was aware that there was a danger I could die, but I was calm,” he said

“I reached a stage where I said I have made my peace with God and if this is the way he want me to go, I was ready,” he added

Muheria, who is also the Nyeri Archbishop has been at the forefront of sensitizing Kenyans to observe the Covid-19 protocols terming the pandemic as a war

“I do not know where I got the infection and it is true I had put a lot of effort to sensitize people but myself to live wearing the mask and observing the protocols,” he said

The Archbishop termed the disease as an invisible enemy calling upon Kenyans to strictly follow the guidelines outlined by the Ministry of Health.

“Covid is gradual, it doesn’t hit you at ago, it gradually comes over you. It’s like a cloud of darkness. You feel your energy going down, you feel you are unable to breath, your thinking starts slowing down,” he explained

Muheria also discouraged Kenyans against self-medication once they experience Covid-19 symptoms a tendency that has led loss of lives that could have otherwise been saved.

“I want to urge any Kenyan please do not trust yourself, do not trust those remedies, go to a doctor or a nurse, don’t self-medicate because if you do unfortunately you are putting yourself in that path of perhaps losing your life,” he advised

Muheria further appealed to Kenyans to take personal responsibility in the fight against Covid-19.

“We are in a Covid war I want to plead, I want to beg with Kenyans that we should not dance with death,” he said

“When I tell people what I’ve gone through, they take me seriously some of the measures but Kenyans get used to everything. Kenyans easily dilute even the most powerful message. How I wish people would understand the sun that is blaring on them for people to change.”
