In our country, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
You would think that with all the lives that coronavirus has claimed over the past year, we would, now more than ever, be worried for our health, and avoid congregating in large groups as directed by the Ministry of Health.
However, we seem to have thrown all caution to the wind, if this week’s mass migration by the upper-middle class to Naivasha is anything to go by.
Mostly fuelled by peer pressure, Nairobi cool kids are gathered in the lake Town, to witness the safari rally championship, and social distancing and masking are not words that exist in the adulterous campsites set up on the shores of Lake Naivasha.
At the risk of sounding like the fun police, shouldn’t the government have posted officials to remind our young men and women of the risk that such gatherings pose on the well-being of the entire country?
We all know that as Kenyans we need a bit of a nudge to actually protect ourselves from harm, and our Ministries of Health/Sports should have done more here.
But since nowadays in our country it is everyone for themselves and God for us all, here comes the coronavirus fourth wave, and with it, the dreaded lockdown.

DP Ruto’s ‘Careless’ Answer During KTN Interview That May Anger Many Kenyans (VIDEO)
Deputy President William Ruto is a man many are seeing to have a big potential in becoming the fifth President of the republic of Kenya.
The man from Sugoi has all that a politician needs to try and convince the voters to send him to State House and succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta but that being said, he still has his short comings which opponents will try to use and deter his ambitions.
