DON’T cross flooded rivers this festive season-Ngilu

 Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has cautioned residents to avoid crossing rivers with flowing waters this festive month of December.

“Please, do not attempt to cross any river that is swollen and that is flooded.

Do not go to any place where the road does not seem to be good. Because you can get stuck there. We have had lots of rains. We thank God for that but we don’t want to have people stranded and stuck in the mud.”, said the first term governor.

Earlier this month, 33 people lost their lives when St Cecilia Catholic Church choir members in Mwingi town were travelling to St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Nuu town to witness a wedding vows renewal ceremony for Mr David Mbuvi Mutua and his wife Veronica Syombua.

The ill-fated St Joseph’s Seminary School bus plunged into River Enziu which had flowing water.

Ngilu reminded Kitui residents to wear face masks and observe social distance as they celebrate Christmas and New Year.

Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka in his characteristic presidential campaign mien had a drawing of a young man written “Kalonzo 22 Kenya Mpya”.

He wished all Kenyans Merry Christmas.

Just like Governor Ngilu, Mwingi North MP Eng Paul Nzengu said despite the challenge of Covid-19, Kenyans should thank God for His protection during the hard times.

Like other Kenyans across the country, many Kitui residents have lost jobs and other sources of livelihoods and look forward to a better year than this.
