President Uhuru Kenyatta together with the first lady have received the COVID-19 vaccine jab.
The Head of State was inoculated at State House, Nairobi prior to addressing the Nation on the COVID-19 situation in the country.
The president got the jab alongside first lady Margaret Kenyatta, Interior CS Fred Matiang’i, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe, Nyeri archbishop Anthony Muheria and Foreign Affairs CS Rachel Omamo and other leaders.
Earlier he had issued a directive that the entire Cabinet and Executive office receive the jab perhaps to boost confidence in the vaccination exercise.
Similarly, West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapou has threatened to fire county government employees who will fail to receive the Covid-19 vaccine.
“I will fire whoever refuses to take the vaccine because I don’t see why I should work with people who set a bad example to the people of West Pokot,” the governor asserted.
