THE government must be commended for mounting a campaign aimed at raising awareness about the Ebola virus disease, which is ravaging parts of West Africa.
I am impressed with the collaboration between the Ministry of Health and the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit of the Vice Presidentâ€™s Office.
The media has also jumped on the band wagon by disseminating information on the disease.
This is the kind of unity the nation needs to protect its citizens from the menace of Ebola.
I am appealing to the Ministry of Education to also use its vast structure spread throughout the country to sensitise communities.
School children should be given adequate information on how to prevent the spread of the virus and how to detect the early signs.
Churches should also use their influence and structures to complement the governmentâ€™s efforts.
I am also appealing to musicians to join the fight against this killer so that it does not rear its head in our country.
