Celebrated secular turned gospel singer Size 8 Reborn has asked fellow women to use family planning during the quarantine period as the government fights the spread of the Coronavirus.
In a video seen by Kenyannews.co.ke, her husband, gospel DJ and emcee DJ MO the told the mother of his two children that due to the curfew, a lot of people were now idle and come December, there will be a lot of newborn babies. He, however, also cautioned men on having unprotected sex.
The Pale Pale singer responded by saying that as the committee of wives there was an important agenda that had just come up and went on to remind women to use whatever method they use to avoid unwanted pregnancies. The Power Power singer also expressed her delight and thanked the government for the curfew stating that it had made their husbands stay at home.
“Please remember to use family planning tafadhali kama unatumianga contraceptives endelea kutumia tafadhali. Wale hawataki watoto sahii tuambiane. But we are still happy that they are at home. Tumefurahi sana sisi kama wanawake,” she stated.
After the Coronavirus proved to be spreading fast in the country, President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered a 7 p.m to 5 a.m curfew countrywide starting last Friday. On day one of the curfew, Kenyans who had not followed the President’s directive experienced police brutality something that angered the whole country.
State officials joined the common mwananchi to call out the police force for excessive use of force with police spokesman Charles Owino apologizing for the behavior. The Ministry of Health led by Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has recorded 81 cases so far of patients infected with the virus with one casualty.
On the brighter side, two of the first patients to contract the virus, Brenda and Brian have been cleared after making full recovery at the Mbagathi Hospital where they were quarantined for 23 days. The two made their first public appearance on national television on Wednesday 1 April when they had a conference call with the president.
