    Thanks alot to the ministry of health and the great work they are doing to fight the Covid 19 in the republic of Kenya. It’s really a good job and congratulations to the minister uncharge and His assistant and all the medical fraternity. I would advice you to keep the good job that you are doing and be ready for challenge question of accountability from the political leaders and all other Kenyans who wish to do so.
    I believe that you needs to have an accountant to every penny that is spend and also avoid spending alot of money on things that Kenyans may think that it’s not necessary like tea and snacks or when you do so you avoid telling them that you did spend that on tea while some of the medical experts are not having necessary equipment to fight the corona virus.
    I wish you all the best as we all fight this giant corona virus.
    God bless you all God bless Kenya.
