On Thursday, Health Cs Mutahi Kagwe announced 80 new cases. Of these, 5 people travelled from Kibera to Siaya for a funeral and tested positive for the virus.
“The Siaya story is a sad one because the departure point of that case is actually in Kibera, somebody in Kibera without the authority to authorize anybody to travel signed a document that allowed and was respected by police all the way from Kibera taking mourners for a funeral in Siaya,” Kagwe said.
