“Shaking of hands,hugging&kissing in Kenya should be banned by the @MOH_Kenya to deal with #Covid_19 . The President should be prevented from shaking hands&all visitors to state house or other offices should tested before meeting the President.This is a matter of National Security,” tweet  part of Murkomen’s Tweet.


According to the Senate majority leader, this should also apply to the second in command Deputy President William and all other public facilities including schools and churches.
