Children must not roam streets – Monze DEBS

IT is unfortunate that while Government closed schools to combat the spread of the Coronavirus, children are roaming the streets without caution, Monze District Education Board Secretary (DEBS) Webster Mwiinga has said.
Mr Mwiinga expressed concern that parents were not exercising necessary preventive measures such as avoiding crowding as children were on the loose, unconcerned about the current health threat.
He said the essence of sending school children home was to minimise contacts and not to send them roam the streets and advised parents to be watchful of the whereabouts of their children.
This is contained in a statement made available to the Daily Nation yesterday by Monze Town public relations officer, Kanchele Kanchele.
“Parents should put up strict measures that will prevent their children from moving aimlessly and avoid any chances of catching the dreaded Covid-19,” Mr Mwiinga said.
Meanwhile, Monze Town Council Secretary Benson Bweenje has called on stakeholders in the district to work as a team in complying with the basic information on Covid-19.
Mr Bweenje said stakeholders should not work in isolation but work as a team as they all had the common goal of ensuring a Covid-19 free Monze.
He observed that working as a team would not only be more effective but that it would also reduce the cost while working in isolation would no doubt balloon the cost of operations and will have less impact on the community.
He also called on stakeholders to cooperate as the measures being put in place are not meant to punish anyone but to safeguard the lives of the over 180, 000 lives in the district.
