He commended the frontline health workers for their tireless work to save people lives. He also sympathized with them over their poor working conditions and lack of PPEs.

Kaikai pleaded with Kenyans and the Government to accord the frontline health workers with the necessary support to enable the continue performing their duties.
“I call on my fellow Kenyans and the government to please give medical personnel the support, peace of mind and the professional space to perform their noble life-saving duties,” Kaikai stated.
He also lamented on the graveside burial protocol of the patients who dies of Covid-19, claiming that he doesn’t understand.
