Anyone who will be found without a face mask in Trans Nzoia county will be arrested and charged.
County commissioner Sam Ojwang says Kenyans have began behaving casualy despite the number of Covid-19 infections in the country rising by the day with the total number hitting 621 on Friday.
“We are now going to be more serious if we get you without a mask you will face the law,” Ojwang said.
Speaking in Kitale during the distribution of food stuff worth Ksh.7 Million from Saboti MP Caleb Amisi, the commissioner urged locals in Kitale town to observe safety regulations.
The Saboti MP warned that the region which acts as a transit point for truck drivers risks spread of the virus and urged his constituents heed to the stay at home directives.
“Today we have brought these food stuff worth Ksh.7 million just to ensure you remain in your homes… We are also going to do cash transfers of an additional Ksh.7 million through mobile money for the vulnerable,” he said.
The county is yet to record a positive case but the neighboring Bungoma has recorded two positive case so far.
