A Catholic priest from Kisii County has raised alarm over village illicit brewing joints. They are more dangerous than bars and clubs.

Father Lawrence Nyaanga says these are regular meeting joints of villagers who are ignorant and have zero knowledge of COVID-19.

They meet in numbers, shake hands, share cups and they rarely wash hands. In fact they don’t. Nyaanga has advised the Government through the Police and Chiefs to storm and raid them too.

“In the village is where real clubs are. Many people meet in brewing homes. We have received complaints from residents especially from Keumbu, Bobaracho, Nyamemiso, and others. We ask the Government to enforce this. Let people strictly adhere to Government rules,” Said Nyaanga.

The cleric who is also the Nyanza regional NACADA coordinator has lauded the Government of Kenya on its continued efforts to control the killer virus.

“We commend the steps taken by our Government through the Ministry of Health to curb the virus. Closing of Schools and Public gatherings was timely.

The Government has already announced a shutdown of all public gatherings including places of worship, Bars, Funerals, weddings, and markets.

Nations across the World are wrestling the pandemic with Kenya registering its 16th case with other more suspects being hunted by Government.

The South Nyanza Anglican Church of Kenya Bishop Rev John Orina Omangi said on Monday that its high time the Church to include Science to provide medical solutions in the near future.

He reiterated that it’s not the church that has been shut but the physical buildings
