Shahbal: I Met Raila A Day After He Had Met Kilifi Deputy Governor Saburi



As response team continues to follow the trails and get all the persons the DG could’ve gotten in contact with him. Already the authorities said over 300 persons had been marked for quarantine.

Governor Kingi who had earlier confirmed getting into contact with the DG, took a test which turned out negative, he had since gone into self quarantine.

Mombasa businessman and politician Suleiman Shahbal happens to be one of the indirect contact with with the DG. Shahbal who posted a photo recently with Raila Odinga has gone out to clarify the situation. He had made contact with Raila who had apparently made contact with the DG a day before.

Below is the statement from Shahbal;

I have read with concern about Kilifi’s Deputy Governor Gideon Saburi who has been diagnosed with the Corona virus. There are rumours that apparently he met with Hon. Raila the day before I met with Raila. I have been reliably informed that Hon. Raila DID NOT MEET THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR of Kilifi County! He met the Deputy Governor of Mombasa! The day after I met Hon Raila, I also bumped into Gov. Amazon Kingi at Moi international Airport, who was wearing a mask. Kingi had obviously met his Deputy. We remembered not to shake hands. I commended him for wearing a mask. Just as Gov Kingi has now taken precautions and gone into self isolation, I too will immediately go to hospital today to be checked for Corona and I will immediately enter into self isolation for the 14 days starting from Thursday when I met Gov. Kingi.

This stresses the importance that we should all apply to taking care about infecting other people – even by accident. Had I know about Gideon Saburi and his possible infection I would have immediately gone into self isolation. While we should not panic we must all stay responsible and do the right things. I have faith that God will eventually remove this plague from us. God help us all in these difficult times.
