The COVID-19 pandemic has brought out the best and worst in leaders in Kenya.
Creativity has made a few stand out, and selflessness has brought out the true compassionate side of others and many, are totally lost – showing zero leadership during this period of a global crisis.
On the flip side, the stories are endless of the citizenry suffering from the almost economic shutdown, no school days, fear of the deadly disease, and worst of all hunger.
However, a leader is shaped and known even better in times of such a crisis.
Nairobi Senator (nominated) has stood tall during these times by sourcing for foodstuffs that will feed 20,000 households.
Sen Millicent Omanga (Mama Miradi), representing 17 sub-counties in Nairobi County, expressed her confidence in providing food to at least 1,000 families in every sub-county/constituency.
“Loading and dispatching foodstuffs (flour [ugali], rice, cooking oil, beans) that will be supplied to 1000 families in every constituency,” said Sen Omanga.
The 2019 Census results revealed the County population stands at 4.4 million persons approximately.
However, the Senator aims to support at least 20,000 vulnerable families across Nairobi, greatly affected by the effects of the corona virus.
This will cushion families from the growing crisis and with more of such support from the government, private sector, and individuals; Kenyans will be spared the difficult times, partially.
Kenyans have lost jobs, businesses closed, roads blocked and 7 pm-5 am daily curfews leaving families suffering untold agony.
