In his viewpoint, Machakos was among the counties worst hit by the novel virus.

“I am asking President Kenyatta to take immediate and bold steps to protect Kenyans from contracting Covid-19 by ordering stoppage of ongoing political rallies across the country,” said Mule.

“It is unfortunate that politicians have been holding unregulated gatherings in total disregard of safety measures to curb Covid-19 infections. It is even worse than members of the public have been ensnared into attending such gatherings which have turned out to be dens of community spread of Coronavirus,” said the MP.
