Covid-19: Will churches really survive these 13 tough rules?

Irrespective of your denomination,there must have been a defined routine followed in your church.

Many for example arrive,the ever vigilant ushers welcomes them in after greeting.Worshippers takes to the pulpit and worship kicks off culminating in moments of intercession.

Corona virus is here with us and to mitigate it ,the interfaith council came up with new guidelines that will totally change the norm.

The question however becomes,will houses of worship adhere to them?

1.No sale of holy water and handkerchiefs

Accordin’g to the new regulations,these will never be available for sale. Congregants will be forced to have theirs.

They that are used to preaching prosperity will not find a chance to sell some of these items.

2.Less Singing and more teachings.

Lovers of of music are hard hit by the interfaith council’s proposal to minimise Singing but intensify teaching.

Just one hour was allocated for each service.Do you think it will suffice worship ,preaching,casting out of demons , performing miracles and collection of offerings?

It is expected of all houses of worship to comply with all these regulations even as they plan to commence their services tommorow.

3.No contact

Congregants have been expressing affection to each other by either greeting or hugging. Currently this is considered an illegality.

4.Maximum of 100 congregants.

Any person that comes after the 100th has entered will have no option but to go back home. Am wondering what will happen if the 101 person is a “high profile person” known for giving enormous “offerings.”

“Calculate the number of attendees to be allowed in the building. The measurement to be used is 36 square feet per person (using the seating space). Markers must be used on benches and chairs must be placed no less than six feet apart in every direction. Those who will make it to the service will be required to avoid handshakes. Greetings should be universally recognised gestures. Namaste (place your hands at chest level).

5.Wearing of masks

Each member will be required to have mask on at all times.For the pastor,he may lower it when addressing the gathering but even then ,he’ll still have to ensure that social distance is enhanced.

If the distance cannot be achieved because of the size of the church ,then the pastor will have no option but to have the mask on throughout.

6.Determination of body temperature.

This will be done at the entrance to the church and each congregant will have to be screened before entering.

A room is to be set in or outside the house of worship where a person is to be placed in the event that he/she falls sick amid the service.

7.A sanitizin’g booth to be set up at the entrance

It must have constantly flowing water,soap ,disinfectant paper towels and hand sanitizers for people to wash hands while getting in or out of the house.

Many Men are not used to such hygienic practices and whether or not they’ll adhere still remains a big question.

8.Above 58 years old congregants to stay at home.

Majority of pastors or Imams are old and probably above the critical age set by the government.They are the same people tasked with conducting the services.

Will they adhere by conducting an online service from home? Certainly not. They’ll want to be around to see the offerings being counted.

9.Those with underlying conditions to keep off .

The medical personnels have highlighted HIV ,diabetes and Hypertension victims to be at risk.

However ,presence of some of these conditions cannot be established simply by looking at somebody.If a victim of any of the conditions defies the order and goes to church,how will the situation be helped?

10.Proper sanitization of microphones after each person uses them

11.All members who attend a service to exit from the church immediately the summon ends.

This will be a big blow to they that are fond of having small post service gossip groups or meetings in the mane of socialising.

“Worshippers will be discouraged from socialising after services outside of the church premises.

12.Contactless means of collection of tythes and offerings.

These include M-pesa paybill numbers or bank accounts but if someone has to touch money then such a person must wear gloves and sanitize.

13.Pre recorded music encouraged meaning singing choir will be hard.

The 36 year old Ohangla maestro passed on at around 3am while recuperatin’g at her sister’s home in Uriri.

Her demise was confirmed to the media by her sister, Bella Achieng.

The death of Maureen comes at a time when Ohangla lovers have not fully recovered from the pinch of pain and sorrow following the passing on of Omondi Longlilo and Abenny Jachiga.

The governor said her death is a great loss to Ohangla community and luo nation.

Nyon’go remembered her for her musical talent that gave benga music a modern twist warming many hearts. 

“The Luo music community will miss her great musical messaging technique championed by careful selection of words in her songs,” he said on Saturday.

On his side,senator Outa assured the family of his support besides condoling with them.

He urged other musicians not to feel discouraged by the misfortunes that have befallen their industry but in stead soldier on and compose songs that unite luos.

The talented musician has battled sickness for about 3years going to and from hospitals.

At the beginning of this year,Maureen was transferred from a hospital in Migori to Jaramogi teaching and referral hospital.

She was later discharged on the 20th of February.

The medical officers in charge then said that she was discharged in light of her positive response to medications.

Kenya Launches Online Marriage Services due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Kenyans will no longer clog Sheria house as Kenya takes marriage services online in its bid to cub Covid-19.

According to the Law Office Chief Administrative Secretary Winnie Guchu ,lovers who wish to be joined in marriage will have to do the entire registration process on the eCitizen portal.

“There will be no more manual services at the registrar of marriage at Sheria House as all services will be available online.

“We do not want any couple coming for services at Sheria House unless it is of utmost importance,” she said.

In May,an influx of clients at the registrar of marriage forced the services to be suspended as it made it hard to enforce Covid-19 measures.

The lowest number that was attended to at the sheria house is estimated at 400 before Corona virus outbreak.

In the months of August and December,the number shot to approximately 600.

An official said that 2551 marriages were suspended following the May closure.

Further,the PS added that Kazi Mtaani aims at providing a source of income for those underrepresented and also to provide platforms to mitigate the negative economic impacts of  Covid-19 pandemic.

Health cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe likely to be jailed for contempt of court.

The cabinet secretary for health Mr. Mutahi Kagwe could be jailed for contempt of court.

He is alleged to have disregarded a court order that barred him from transferring two officials at the National Quality Control Laboratory (NQCL).

Sources say that there has been a Tussle between the CS and two senior most officials from Quality control Laboratory.

The two officials are Dr Hezekiah Chepkwony and Dr Pius Wanjala.

The ruling by Justice Onesmus Makau could further highten the existing “fight” between Kagwe and the two officials.

The ruling read;

 “The Honourable Cabinet secretary, Mr Mutahi Kagwe, is hereby cited for contempt of this court’s judgment/decree dated January 31, 2020, for his decision contained in the letter Ref: 1991082265 dated June 12, 2020, deploying Dr Hezekiah K. Chepkwony from the National Quality Control Laboratory to the Kenya Medical Training College.

On the 23rd of this month,the CS is expected to appear before the judge virtually, either personally or through his lawyer “for mitigation and sentencing.”

Besides,the court has revoked the transfer  letters to the two Doctors in question.

Dr Wanjala, who was expected to report to MTRH has been allowed to pursue further contempt proceedings against the CS.

Guilty.
Kagwe was found guilty of disregarding a court order that prevented him from transfering Dr. Wanjala and Chepkwony.

In January 31, the Labour court stopped former Health CS Sicily Kariuki from transferring the doctors; they filed a petition to stop the move.

They cited skills mismatch, disregard of court orders and little time to hand over and report to the new stations.

The doctors told the court that, the ministry delivered their transfer letters, dated June 12, on June 16 at 2pm, requiring them to report to their new stations the following day.

Raila’s Spokesman reveals why he may stay longer in Dubai.

Going by Raila’s visitation by two leaders from his party ,Hon Junet and Joho,chances are that the luminary might take long before coming back home.

The duo ,went to Dubai aboard 19 seater jet with the main aim of seeing “Baba” who is currently recuperatin’g in a German Hospital in Dubai.

When the spokesman,Dennis Onyango was asked whether Raila would be coming soon,he said that he (Raila) was advised by his doctor to take a break and that’s exactly what he was doing.

“I cannot say with certainty [when he is coming back]. I don’t want to speculate. He is resting. Both doctors and the family think he should take a break,”Onyango told the star.

Last week ,a video of a strong Raila emerged online ending fears that he was bedridden.

He confirmed that he had been successfully operated on and was recuperatin’g ,after which he would travel back home to continue with activities including politics.

“I am feeling good, great, very strong and rejuvenated. I am feeling great really to be out of hospital breathing fresh air. I will be doing my usual jigs very soon,” Raila said.

“I want to thank all my friends, supporters and all our youth who have sent me so many messages of goodwill. It has just been amazing and wonderful. It made me recover so fast.”

The NASA leader said that his fitness was comparable to that of a fiddle.

BBI report.

Even after the BBI taskforce announced that the report was ready,it has not been presented to President Kenyatta.

This is partly attributed to Raila Odinga’s absence from the country.

The task force under the chairmanship of Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji announced that they had finalised writting the report and was only waiting for president Uhuru so that they can present it to him.

“The steering committee, since the date of the gazetting, has successfully conducted validation of the BBI Task Force Report through consultations with citizens, civil society, faith-based organisations, cultural leaders, private sector and experts,” the task force said.

Parliamentary committee positions.

While Raila was away, His and Uhuru’s allies disagreed on how to share parliamentary positions.

The disagreement revolved around the composition of key commitees.

The minority side blatantly rejected some of Uhuru’s members.

This week however ,the two sides have reached an amicable solution after jubilee side agreed to drop some allies of the deputy president from Justice and Legal Affairs and Delegated Legislation.

Police boss orders removal of road blocks ,cites corruption in traffic management.

Deputy Inspector General  of police  Edward Mbugua has orded all police officers not to mount roadblocks.

This is according to a communication to police chiefs that was copied to Traffic commandant in Nairobi.

According to the standard ,the communication was informed by realisation by the police boss that the traffic police are involved in corrupt practices.

Mr. Mbugua sounded a warning to both  senior and junior officers , particularly to the senior ones who field their juniour ones to the traffic department without a go ahead from him.

In the process of enforcing traffic regulations, police officers are expected to patrol the highways according to the new traffic guidelines.

Ironically, some senior officers, have been attaching traffic officers at police roadblocks mounted to control the movement of vehicles and people during the Covid-19 travel restrictions.

Mortorist extortion
In a letter to seven regional commanders ,the deputy Inspector General of police  said that several officers have been extorting mortorists.

The language used by the police is nolonger diplomatic as is expected of them, revealing the top officers annoyance with the matter.

“It is not rocket science to know the motive. It’s simple to engage in corrupt practices for the commanders and for the deployed (officers) benefit,” Mbugua said in the letter, sent to police chiefs last Friday.

He faulted the senior police officers for sending their junior officers to the road blocks with intentions of collecting bribe.

This act goes contrary to Inspector General , Hilary Mutyambai’s order that traffic roadblocks had been abolished.

In the past years ,police department has been cited as being the most corrupt.

Last September, the IG announced new traffic operation regulations that saw traffic officers put under the command of police station commanders popularly known as OCS.

Before September, traffic officers were under the command and supervision of base commanders who reported to their bosses at the county level.

Mutyambai had said roadblocks on highways were only to be mounted with the express authority of regional/formation commanders and “must be justified and rationalised.”

He said commanders shall have to be held accountable for any misconduct by traffic police officers, who goes unpunished under their commands.

This was part of the new police head’s efforts to deal with corruption.
