The Bars, Hotels, and Liquor Traders Association (BAHLITA) has recommended that clients who are vaccinated within their establishments receive free beers.
On Friday, October 22, the group proposed a monetary incentive for the Ministry of Health to use their facilities as Covid-19 immunization sites.
Boniface Gachoka, secretary of BAHLITA, noted that bars, like churches and hospitals, have frequent consumers and asked the Ministry to capitalize on this opportunity.
“Bars are locations where people congregate, and like churches, they can become one of the sites where people can be sure to get immunizations on a regular basis.”
“We invite the Ministry of Health to partner with our members, particularly the large businesses, to offer vaccines to more Kenyans,” he said.
Frank Mbogo, the chairman, emphasized that the bars would carefully comply to the Bar Kumi concept, a self-regulating system to ensure adherence to the Covid-19 guidelines.
BAHLITA is attempting to re-employ 90,000 people who were laid off when 15,000 bars closed during the pandemic.
“Our wish, which we can all contribute to realize, is for operations to resume normalcy and to never have to shut down again.”
“We appreciate President Uhuru Kenyatta lifting the curfew,” Mbogo said.
