Unvaccinated won’t Access Government Services – Oguna reiterates

Unvaccinated won’t Access Government Services – Oguna reiterates.

The government, through spokesman Cyrus Oguna, has reiterated that unvaccinated Kenyans will be denied access to all government services beginning Tuesday, December 21.

Speaking at a road safety sensitization exercise in Mau Summit, Nakuru county, Oguna stated that the government was working hard to keep all Kenyans safe.

Oguna urged Kenyans who lacked proof of vaccination certificates to call the government in order to receive government services.

“The person who is giving you services in a government office has their own life, so if you are vaccinated you protect your life and the life of that person you will find there,” Oguna stated.

Oguna shared his own experience, stating that he has yet to regain his sense of smell since contracting Covid-19 in 2020.

“Up to now I cannot differentiate between diesel and petrol unless I look at it, by God’s grace at least I can walk and talk which is not the case for most people, please get vaccinated,” he added.

The spokesman urged Kenyans to continue adhering to the Covid-19 protocols, which include wearing face masks, observing social distance, and washing hands.

The number of people infected by the virus has been increasing, and some Omicron cases have been reported.

Oguna concluded by stating that the National Emergency Response Committee on Covid-19 would convene to discuss the next steps.

On Tuesday, December 14, the High Court suspended a government directive denying unvaccinated Kenyans access to basic services.

According to Justice Mrima, the directive will be suspended until the petition is heard and decided.

On November 21, Kagwe, along with CS Tourism Najib Balala, issued directives requiring everyone seeking in-person government services to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination by December 21.
