Deputy President William Ruto has asked Kenyans to be cautious following the confirmation of a Coronavirus case in the country.
He said Kenyans need to follow the directions given by the Government so as to curtail its spread.
“We appreciate that Coronavirus is an international problem. We must play our respective parts as advised by the ministry of health,” said the Deputy President.
He spoke on Friday in Nandi County where he launched the construction of Chapterwai Hospital Complex, issued 620 title deeds to residents of Chepterwai and Soimining and led an empowerment Programme of AIC Kechire Secondary School.
Meanwhile, the DP has warned public servants against using their offices to intimidate politicians.
He said some had gone to an extend of using President Uhuru Kenyatta’s name to threaten leaders who hold independent political views.
“Those are brokers and conmen. The President has never sent anyone to act on his behalf on such issues,” he said.
Dr Ruto called on those civil servants to quit office and “join politics if they wish so”.
The Deputy President spoke on Friday while addressing wananchi at Kapsabet and Mosoriot towns in Nandi County.
