Mwalimu Churchill’s open letter to Uhuru ahead of his address

Dear Mr President

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Mwalimu Churchill

Comedian Daniel Ndambuki alias Mwalimu Churchill has penned down an open letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta, asking him to consider re-opening the country on grounds that the entertainment industry is suffering.

According to Churchill, the past 6 months have been very difficult for Kenyans and it will only be good if he allows them to go back to work by relaxing measures put in place to curb the spread of Covid-19.

He pointed out that the entertainment industry in the country is very young and doesn’t have the shock absorbers to withstand the ongoing economic disruption.

“Dear Mr President

We Kindly request you to open up the restrictions in regards to the Entertainment Industry where most youths earn a living from.

For the past six months Entertainers including Musicians, Djs, Comedians, actors & Actresses
