President Uhuru Kenyatta leads National Prayers at State house
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday led National prayers over the Corona Virus pandemic at the State House.
The event brought together clerics from different denominations who called on the leaders to strengthen the fight against the pandemic affirming that the disease knows not race or social status.
The prayer service was attended by Deputy President William Ruto, Opposition chief Raila Odinga and Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, Chief Justice David Maraga and Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai.
In order to maintain social distancing, the sitting arrangement for the event was placed at one meter apart and even the choir had to stand at a meter apart.
Last Wednesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta declared Saturday a National Day of Prayer amid the worldwide coronavirus outbreak, saying “we cannot ignore the need to turn to God” in these “circumstances”.
