Jalang'o went home but did not get the chance to hug or be close to his mother and we blame it all on COVID-19.
He went to ushago for the funeral service of his friend and mentor, the late Papa Shirandual. The ceremony adhered to the new normal life we've been forced to adopt, but his sendoff went well.
Speaking on The Morning Kiss, he said he was frustrated he couldn't greet his mother noting it is for her safety.
"MY OWN MOTHER DID NOT EVEN GREET ME, WALITUTOLEA MA THERMOMETER HUKO. PEOPLE UPCOUNTRY BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE IN NAIROBI HAS COVID-19, HATA MATANGA HAWAKUJI KAMA KITAMBO."
From statistics, more older people have succumbed to COVID-19 and so the best thing is to avoid contact with them especially if your contact chances are high.
