Matatus have gone back to the bad old ways- ignoring Covid -19 rules

Jogoo road Matatus have reverted back to the old bad habits with excess passengers on board

If you reside or are on a visit to the Eastlands area of Nairobi you are likely to find people behaving completely “normal” with no face masks or even observing social distance measures, they are back to handshakes and hugging! Sanitisers and handwashing points have long since been
discarded!

In the popular Kayole Forward Matatus, passengers are back to bad old ways being crammed like sardines in sacks while others are allowed to stand! Try to question this and they retort “ulisikia hiyo wapi?”

One may think that the Covid- 19 infection figures that the government keeps reading out at daily press briefings are the “figment of imagination” by health cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe! Kagwe, he of the “if we continue to behave normally’ fame has of late toned down his rhetoric confirming “doubting Thomases” that Covid 19 is only alive and well in the harrowed corridors of power!

Traffic police officers, very visible along Jogoo road do absolutely nothing after brief “handshakes” with conductors on the jam-prone narrow Jogoo road. Even in the usually respectable Double M buses that used to carry one passenger a seat, things have changed overnight.

The common talk now claims that there is “no corona” and those wearing masks are the “sick ones!” Such a confounding situation could again see infection rates go high, forcing the government to resort to more punitive measures. An expert says that Kenya’s public transport system is now becoming the “super spreaders” taking corona from far and near the suburbs to the CBD, warning of a possible resurgence of the “third wave” if Kenyans “backslide” to their bad old days.

Similar fears have been expressed by top health experts scientists and researchers at KEMRI condemning the “casual” attitude of some Kenyans who are “dicing with death.” People are back to engaging in risky behaviour, no longer wearing masks which is not acceptable.
Experts warn that what happened in India recently where hundreds of thousands died should not be seen in isolation as “Covid 19” is a global pandemic ravaging the whole world, and can easily happen here.
