“Corona Cant’ Stop BBI Reggae , We Are On Halftime” Raila Tells Kenyans
Orange Democratic Movement boss Raila Odinga now says the coronavirus pandemic did not stop the Building Bridges Initiative but instead gave them an opportunity for ‘halftime’.
Speaking on Friday, Raila says there is a lot going on behind closed doors and that immediately the pandemic ends Kenyans views will be divided into three; those that need parliamentary parliament, those that need the government change of policy and those that need a referendum.
He told Kenyans to stay calm and that the BBI train is on course and nothin has stopped.
‘‘The Coronavirus has just slowed down BBI activities but reggae has not been stopped. We are just on half time as we say in football… We were almost finishing but the BBI team is still working.’’ He said.
He, however, asked the government to ensure that proper measures are put in place should the country move to total lockdown.
‘‘We want the government to prepare well and must have a sustainable feeding program for the less privileged in big slum areas should the pandemic force us to a total lockdown,’’ he added.
Quick measures that one needs to embrace to defeat the spread of COVID-19 include washing hands with soap, keeping a 1.5-meter social distancing, putting on masks in crowded places and staying at home.
