Cabinet secretary for sports, culture & heritage Amb. Amina Mohammed has ruled out resumption of sports until the Corona pandemic curve goes down.
The C.S however insisted there was still hope as long as people continue to observe ministry of health protocols.
“Let’s pray hard for the curve to go down. The more we continue to observe the ministry of health protocols, the sooner we shall come back to normalcy. For now, we have a presidential directive in place and ministry of health guidelines, we must protect our people by observing social distances so that we can contain this pandemic.” She observed.
She spoke on Tuesday during the presentation of a whooping sponsorship cheque of Ksh.100 million towards the forthcoming world Rally championship (WRC) safari Rally from title sponsors Kenya Commercial Bank(KCB).
