“Honourable members, I am asking that now we have the second wave in Kenya and in the whole world which is serious. Those who are doubting can now see it is a reality. Members I want to remind ourself of regulations that we agreed we follow. Let us wear our masks and not only wearing them but wearing them properly. Let us continue washing our hands and using sanitizers.” Speaker Florence Mwangangi urged MCA.
