Makueni bans Miraa joints as part of COVID-19 preventive measures

Makueni County Government has resolved to ban Muguka and Miraa chewing joints in the County as part of the continuous measures to fight against the coronavirus.

The resolutions were made during the County’s Emergency committee held on Wednesday led by Governor Kivutha Kibwana.  The county has also joined the likes of Kakamega County in the suspension of market days and limiting of funerals and burials to close family members.

“The county executive committee resolves and directs the suspension of all public gatherings such as sporting, leisure, muguka & miraa chewing joints etc,” reads part of the resolutions.

Bars and night clubs have not been affected by the resolutions but will be expected to operate for seven hours starting 5 PM. The joints will be expected to adhere to the hygiene rules.

“Night clubs and liquor licensed outlets to operate from 5 pm-11 pm including weekends. Any outlet not compliant will be delicensed,” the statement further reads.

The County has also moved to ban touting. All Public Service Vehicles and Bodaboda Saccos will be required to provide handwashing facilities with either liquid soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizes at pick up points.

Shops, hotels, supermarkets, malls, places of work and public gyms, will also be expected to provide washing facilities. In hotels, good documentation of clients will be required in case the need to trace them arises.

Locals have been discouraged against panic buying of goods and peddling rumours about the diseases. The County Government has promised to provided updates on the virus via the County spokesman.

Locals will be expected to reported cases via 0790 777 756.
