Man volunteers to Fumigate Police stations to curb COVID-19 spread
With the world grappling with the effects of COVID-19 and many youths fighting joblessness, one man has taken the initiative to fight the spread of the global pandemic.
Robert Okubo was recently filmed fumigating the Kasarani police station after he volunteered to help officers stay safe during the pandemic.
Robert and his team of 30 have been fumigating outside the station, which includes offices, hallways and toilets.
“I thought it was important for me to check up on them and see if they were getting any services, if not I offer for them and apparently they are not getting it as frequent and I thought it important to at least volunteer and help out where I could, Imagine what the country would be like if we had police officers falling sick and there is no one to maintain law and order and the problems we have in the society? ” said Okubo
Okubo and his team have been going around different police stations to fumigate for the last three weeks.
The 51-year-old says he wishes he and team of volunteers could do more because the anti-viral and disinfectant spray they use is not costly, but they lack additional resources and equipment.
Okubo plans to regularly disinfect Nairobi’s more than 40 police stations. So far, his team has covered four of the capital’s busiest police stations.
