Machakos governor Dr Alfred Mutua has urged Kenyans to donate to Pastors and religious leaders during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic period, since they are no longer receiving tithes and offerings every weekend.

Dr Mutua says that the clergy are becoming vulnerable, and should be supported as they pray for the nation.

“If possible, quietly and privately, I encourage you to remember your Pastor, Priest, Imam, Rabbi, Guru, Missionary etc. Please, occasionally, give them a bit of flour, milk, bread and even send them some meat, during this time. This will cushion them as they lead us in prayer,” tweeted Dr Mutua.

In March, President Uhuru Kenyatta said that in line with the directive to avoid crowded places, citizens are encouraged to avoid congregating in places of worship, among other places like weddings and funerals.

Some churches have opted to remain closed in the meantime and conduct their services online and suspend other meetings.

Those incapacitated have opted to close completely.

Currently, Kenya has a total of  216 confirmed cases of Covid-19, 41 recoveries and 9 fatalities.

So far, the virus has spread to 21 counties.

They are spread out as follows:

Nairobi 101, Mombasa 34, Kilifi 10, Kiambu 7, Mandera 6, Machakos 6, Nakuru 5, Kisii 1, Kitui 2, Laikipia 2, Kajiado 2, Muranga 2, Homa Bay 1, Kakamega 2, Nyamira 1, Nyandarua 2, Nyeri 1, Siaya 2, Uasin Gishu 2, Vihiga 1, and Kwale 1.
