The Government has commenced the distribution of free sanitizers.
First to share the news was Chief of Staff in the Office of President Nzioka Waita who said every Kenyan will have his very soon.
“Received my bottle of freehand sanitizer produced by GOK. These sanitizers will be distributed countrywide for free.”
The project was to ensure that citizens combat coronavirus infection through proper hygiene.
Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) released Ethanol they had confiscated to be used to manufacture the products.
Kenyans are however raising concerns of some unscrupulous trades taking advantage and reselling them.
“Someone will remove the stickers and start selling them. I can’t trust this govt with anything. Not even with itself.” Said blogger Robert Alai.
