Deputy President William Ruto now wants all leaders to stop politics and come together to save the country from more Covid-19 deaths.
In his Sunday November 15th evening touching tweet, the second in command noted that the rate at which Covid-19 was ravaging the nation, must worry any one in leadership.
He predicted that in few days to come, the situation may go off hand and bringing it back to normalcy will not be an easy task.
Ruto then called upon all Politians to now stop everything they were doing and focus their guns on the situation around the country.
“The wave of Covid19 is clearly RAVAGING our nation with ALARMING increases in infections and deaths. The pandemic is KILLING people including health workers while DESTROYING livelihoods. We should STOP everything and mobilize every HUMAN, MATERIAL and FINANCIAL resource to fight,” Ruto observed.
