Reports of Pastor Robert Burale being admitted at hospital over Corona virus moments after the president lifted lockdown on Nairobi, Mombasa and Mandera caused panic amongst many Kenyans and escipecially his strict followers.
There was uproar on twitter as allegations emerged that the Robert Burale had been paid by the ministry of health to pretend that he had been infected with Corona Virus.
This prompted the journalists who were present during the Corona virus pandemic briefing to ask the ministry of health Cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe to clarify whether the claims against the government were true.
“I do not know this Robert Burale guy, but why would anyone pretend to be sick?” ~ Health CS Mutahi Kagwe wondered.
Mutahi Kagwe came out guns blazing against the journalists as he said that it is not logical for a person to pretend that he has been infected with Corona virus and if he was admitted this means he is Covid-19 positive.
“I never heard of this guy…I honestly don’t know about this Robert guy.” CS Mutahi Kagwe responded to a question about the credibility of Robert Burale’s sickness.
Silas Wafula remarked, “Standard media no wonder one of your journalists had the audacity to ask CS Kagwe the covid status of Robert Burale in the press briefing. It is like CS Kagwe is a medic with names of all people who have tested positive/negative, straight from the lab. #ResistStandardnewspaper”
