Mombasa county governor Hassan Joho bodyguard test positive for Covid-19. He is quarantined with others at Mombasa Beach Hotel.

The bodyguard is among the four that guard the governor. He tested positive while in Nairobi and all have been quarantined at Mombasa Beach Hotel.

Dennis Maganga Lewa, the county secretary and county health executive, Hazel Koitaba confirmed the report.

Sources authenticated that the bodyguard had escorted the governor to Nairobi for the Senate hearings and tested positive after the sessions, few days before Joho jetted out of the country.

They were all flown back to Mombasa, according to the Star Digital reports.

"The good thing is that he is asymptomatic and so there was no need of having him admitted," said the sources.

The Governor and his staff undergo routine testing for Covid-19 after every two weeks.

"This was one of the times they were going for the tests. You know they interact with so many people and thus, Joho has never wanted to take chances," the source said.
