The national and county governments have been asked to strictly implement Covid-19 control measures at Lunga Lunga on the Kenya-Tanzania border.

This follows increased concern over illegal border crossing by Tanzanian residents despite the recent border closure by Kenya to curb the spread of the coronavirius disease.

Members of the Kwale-Kamba Community Focus group were speaking when they supervised the spraying of the White House slums in the border township.

Peter Nzeki, a resident of Shimba Hills in Msambweni Sub-County in Kwale County, claimed that Tanzanians had continued to cross into Kenya by trucks or by sea.

The group fumigated bus stations, boda boda stages and shopping centres, among other places.

Another member, Ann Kisui, blamed the increasing Covid-19 cases on the failure to observe safety measures, including social distancing. Some people, she claimed, continued to gather and chew muguka.

“Many people are not wearing face masks nowadays, as they are going back to their normal lifestyles,” she lamented.

Group coordinator Peter Nzuki urged fellow residents and private organisations to join hands to fight the pandemic.

He said the campaign would be extended to the residential areas, as he urged the people to strictly observe the safety guidelines from the Health ministry.
