All Kenyans want at this point is for life to resume and the country to be opened up. We have been in lock down for close to seven months now.
People are suffering and we have seen the entertainment industry come out to speak against the directives the government is putting in place but not following them for their own benefit.
Speaking on The Morning Kiss, Kamene and Jalas are equally angered.
"Things came to a stand still because of how the government wanted to run things in Kenya. Nobody has announced corona is over or we’ve flatter the curve etc but see what is happening, rallies all over." Jalas aired his sentiments
Kamene jumped in and added the ongoing debate of politicians going for rallies yet they are not even obeying the directives set.
"What has me shook is that the audacity to have no mask, social distance nothing! Yet weekly we have these guidelines in place. In short for them life goes on and ours does not.
Corona only belongs to kawaida people. When we want to drink, go out and work at night there is no corona but when there is BBI there is no corona."
Adding that it pains her to see some of her friends have not earned anything since the pandemic started yet they the government officials are at work.
"I have friends who have not worked a day since March. Others haven’t earned any form of income since March. Everyone went to survival mode even going into their savings.. It’s like someone saying jokes on you!"
Jalas who had very few comments on the issue as politics holds a special place in his heart, added that,
"Kenya is special. When all these things came out on the money being stolen etc then they decided to come up and they decide to be real. Other countries don’t have corona."
The question remains, did we have to go through all this for people to make money? Why are we the ones who pay the price? And then we forget.
