Kiraitu Murungi, Governor of Meru County in Kenya, has tested positive for Covid-19 12 days after receiving the AstraZeneca vacccine.

While confirming the results on Friday afternoon, Misheck Mutuma M’Muyuri, the County Executive Committee Member (CECM) for Health Services at Meru County, said the Governor willingly decided to self-isolate in line with WHO Covid-19 protocols shortly after the test.

Mutuma further stressed that, for avoidance of doubt and misunderstanding, the 69 year-old veteran politician hadn’t been admitted but only decided to self-isolate at his home under the allowed home-based care.

He also urged Kenyans to continue adhering to all Covid-19 guidelines for their safety.

Murungi received the Covid-19 jab at the Meru Teaching and Referral Hospital on Monday, March 8, 2021. He was among the first group of 6000 Kenyans to be vaccinated.

Shortly after Mutuma’s statement, a section of Kenyans took to social media to seek answers to this abstruse case.

Here are a few;

Over the past few days, the Governor has been in the forefront in calling out politicians who are raising concerns over the safety of AstraZeneca vaccine.

“I call on our political leaders across the country who are making statements and utterances aimed at undermining the vaccination exercise to stop misleading the people,” he warned.  

As of March 19, Kenya had recorded a total of 118,889 Covid-19 cases and 1,982 deaths (28 deaths being registered on 19th).
