"As we embark on preparing for any rise in the number Covid-19 infections, the Machakos Government has converted Machakos Stadium into a health facility," he added.

Speacial Allowances

Dr Mutua had told off the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) for opposing payment of a special allowance to health workers who are at the forefront in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said that his administration plans to pay each health worker a special monthly allowance ranging between Ksh5,000 and Ksh20,000 for the next three months.

In my respectful opinion, this circular is not only in bad taste but also completely out of tune with the mood and best interest of Kenyans,” Dr Mutua said.
