US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — A group of Kenyan clerics asked the government to include churches on the list of “essential services” so that they can continue to worship while the country is fighting an outbreak of coronavirus. This was reported by the Swahili Air Force.
Pastors representing the churches of Makwaney County in eastern Kenya have stated that faith is “the best way to fight an invisible enemy.”
They suggested that churches be allowed to conduct Sunday services in open air, while maintaining a distance of one meter between people to prevent coronavirus infection.
As one of the pastors, Nicholas Küle , told Citizen TV, the church is “the best place for hope and perseverance.”
Another, Titus Usvi , told the Star newspaper that the country would “be involved in worthless activities,” while the churches remain closed.
According to reporters, the Kenyan government has banned public meetings. In addition, on March 27, the Kenyan government imposed a curfew, which, however, does not apply to those attributed to representatives of the “basic services”, including, among others, health workers, security officials, the media, food traders and carriers.
