    1. Nobody is just above the law, following simple directives to quarantine himself is now tragedic, let we wish them quick recovery and if it means death is coming let them take heart, no one at all is save , Let the simple Kenyans take caution because it's spreading like wild fire, if the driver and the driven got to contact many people then we expect a surge in the number of cases , not only that , the government should see the top leaders who have contacted the virus being treated in their home county hospitals because that's where they've infested in and if the system there ain't efficiently functional, may God forbid, let them die . Because that's what they've wished for their subjects. Good luck

This guy should be arrested and charged for putting kilifi residence at risk.he knew well that he had corona virus after being forced to leave German by German officials who had tested him and find him positive of corona..this guy comes back to the country attend gatherings in the village like nothing is wrong. Such an irresponsible leader... the government should take actions against him for endangering our lives.

  10. He is irresponsible and has ended up infecting so many of Kilifi residents. He should be charged with manslaughter if anyone dies in Kilifi from his irresponsible actions

  16. He was my lecturer @ Mombasa polytechnic, he disappeared for a whole semester no classes & we had to Jack him out of class. He is irresponsible from the word go. He has been like that ever since. Kilifians have a reason to be ashamed of such leaders in the name Gedion Saburi

  20. This is a true confirmation that we still can't believe that serious precautions are being taken by the government. If they were carrying out tests for people coming into Kenya at the airport, then that DP would have been realized at the airport.

  21. This is serious. Quick recovery DG. He did wrong thing if at all he knew was positive not going to quarantine but lets remember he is also a human and needs moral support more so to his family

  22. This kind of impunity by our leaders should never be to related. He should be charged and lose that seat at the same time. Very selfish of him to have done this
