Makueni county commissioner Mohammed Maalim has warned that no tents should be put up during funerals as the number of attendants should be 50. According to Maalim, 50 people do not require tents and should instead use the homestead.

The county commissioner warned politicians who are using funeral gatherings to do politics that it shall not be tolerated.

“After Political gatherings were banned, politicians are now using funerals to do politics. We shall not accept that.” He said.

“We will not accept tents to be put up in funerals as we have been told the limit is 50 people. There is no need to put up tents for 50 people. That should be at the homestead. I’ve told our chiefs to ensure no tents are in this county. That is an order and it shall be enforced.” The county commissioner went on.

Maalim further Warned Boda Boda riders who are being used to ferry people either to or from the disease-infected zone that tough action will be taken if any of them is caught.
