NTV highlighted a story of how a woman in Mombasa struck with poverty resorted to boiling stones to give illusions to her kids that there’s food.

Mombasa remains top of the two most hit counties with coronavirus after Nairobi. Governor Joho has requested the state to impose a total lockdown in the county in a desperate measure to contain the virus that is rapidly spreading.

KPA is almost running to a halt following a diagnosis that found a large number of employees infected with the Wuhan virus.

Economy of the country had been dealt a huge blow with the ongoing partial lockdown, despite donations from donors and counties like Mombasa giving subsidies, the population is starving. The government through Covid-19 relief fund is currently giving Sh1,000 weekly to vulnerable families but when that is not enough and covering all.

In Mombasa, a mother was highlighted on the media on resorting to boil stones to give her starving kids an illusion of Food cooking. Her desperation is not just unique to the county. With a frozen economy, many are now starving and impoverished.

Overwhelmed government is now considering opening the economy with one foot in. Restaurants that ideally offers employment to many have been given a go ahead for operation.

Businessman Suleiman Shahbal has responded to the Mombasa lady caught up in the mix of the day. “I am terrified by this story of a woman, in Kisauni who boiled stones to feed her family! No parent should ever go through this! I have dispatch my team in Mombasa to take for her family some food items. If we can’t feed our people as a nation then nothing else really matters!”
