Betty Kyallo has decided to suspend all operations at her Kilimani based, flair by Betty salon.
This decision, she says is a way of showing responsibility towards her clients amid Covid-19.
“I HAVE DECIDED TO SUSPEND SEVICES AT FALIR AND IT IS BECAUSE I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND THE DANGER WE ALL ARE IN AND I APPRECIATE THAT WE ALL HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY AS MUCH AS WE ARE ALL GOING BE AFFECTED I CANNOT EVEN IMAGINE HOW IT WILL BE WITHOUT OPENING THE SALON.”
“THERE IS A BIGGER RESPONSIBILITY, WE NEED TO LOOK AT AND APPRECIATE OUR CLIENTS WE HOPE THIS THING GOES AWAY SOON. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY WE SHOULD STAY SAFE. STAY AT HOME.”
“DO THE RIGHT THING. IT IS ROUGH. THIS THING IS BIGGER THAN US, WE NEED OUR HEALTH IT IS BIGGER THAN THE MONEY WE CAN GET FROM OUT BUSINESSES.”
Betty called upon the government to put measures that will help Kenyans that rely on casual jobs to feed their families, saying;
“I HOPE THAT GOVERNMENT IS ALSO GOING TO SUPPORT BUSINESSES AND PEOPLE WHO RELY ON DAY TO DAY CASUAL JOBS TO MAKE A LIVING. I PRAY THEY CAN LOOK INTO THIS LIKE OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE DONE BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO FORGET THAT PEOPLE MAKE A LIVING EVERY DAY. THEY MAKE MONEY EVERY DAY 500 BOB, 200 BOB, 1000 BOB TO BE ABLE TO FEED THEIR FAMILY.”
“I HOPE THE GOVERNMENT IS ALSO GOING TO CONSIDER THAT WE ARE NOT MAKING ANY MONEY, SO THERE IS NO RENT, TO PAY RENT AND TAX AND ALL THESE THINGS. THEREFORE I PRAY THERE IS A BIGGER PLAN BY GOVERNMENT TO HELP BUSINESSES AND ALSO HELP THE DAY TODAY PEOPLE WHO RELY ON DAY TO DAY MOVEMENT TO MAKE A LIVING. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR THEM TO THINK ABOUT US, MORE THAN EVER. RIGHT NOW.”
