Following a government directive suspending all mass gatherings on Friday last week, churches are taking cue to comply.

A number of churches have suspended communal services as the coronavirus pandemic takes a toll and as the country seeks to contain the spread.

Already, government functions for essential services in public agencies have also been scaled down in courts, immigration, police stations and land registries.

The Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) has suspended all Sunday services but individuals can access the church premises for private prayers.

In sync with the times, the church has asked the government to provide necessary utilities such as water and electricity without charges.

The church is also asking the government to consider suspending all loan repayments and interests through financial institutions in addition to lifting taxation on essential commodities such as food.
