Amina Mohammed, the overly active Kenyan Sports Cabinet Secretary received negative review from a section of netizens for disobeying Ministry of Health social distance guidelines.
The government has been constantly appealing to citizens to observe 1.5m social distance rule and avoid handshakes during these times of the Covid-19 pendamic, but the Sports CS did exactly the opposite in her latest picture posted on Twitter Monday.
In the photo, Amina is seen standing very close, just inches away from the reigning World half marathon record holder Geoffrey Kamwor.
Kamworor is currently recuperating from an accident after he was hit by a motorbike during a regular morning exercise last week.
Amina, who has been busy with work as the government intensifies its ambitious plans for stadiums upgrades in the country, also didn’t have a face mask on as the duo shook hands.
“Wishing World Half Marathon Record Holder Geoffrey Kamworor quick recovery as he’s discharged from hospital today. I thank the medical personnel who attended to him following the accident,” Amina who has been shuttling from one part of the country to another in recent days said in her message to Kamworor.
But keen Kenyans did not waste time in reminding the CS of breaking the very laws that the government has been preaching to the citizens respect.
Peter Smith wondered: “I thought there should be no shaking of hands.”
“If we continue behaving normally…” joked Evans Miriti while another Twitter user added: “It’s great that he is well but you are having handshakes.The social distance between you two cannot be illuminated with an electron microscope. Its so minute. You two are not wearing masks.”
SPORTS AFRICA could not indipendently verify when exactly the photo was taken.
