Muheria, who is also the Archbishop of Nyeri, has been at the forefront of urging Kenyans to adhere to Covid-19 principles which refer to the crisis as war

“I don’t know where I got the infection and I really did my best to encourage people but I myself live to wear a mask and watch the protocol,” he said.

The Archbishop described the disease as an invisible enemy calling on Kenyans to adhere to the guidelines set by the Ministry of Health.

“Covid is slow, it doesn’t give you the past, slowly it comes over you. It’s like a dark cloud. You feel your energy diminish, you feel like you can’t breathe, your mind starts to slow down,” he explained.

The lawyer also discouraged Kenyans against personal treatment when they experienced symptoms of Covid-19 behavior that resulted in loss of life that would otherwise have been saved.

“I would like to urge any Kenyan to please do not trust yourself, do not believe in such treatments, go to a doctor or nurse, do not treat yourself because if you do so you are unfortunately putting yourself in such a way that you may lose your life,” he advised.

The lawyer further urged Kenyans to take personal responsibility in the fight against Covid-19.

“We are in the Covid war. I want to pray. I want to pray with Kenyans that we should not play with death,” he said.

“When I tell people what I’ve been through, they take me a step further but Kenyans are used to everything. Kenyans easily reduce even the most powerful messages. How I wish people would understand the sun that shines on them and people would change. ”
