President Uhuru Kenyatta has revealed that he ordered the arrest of Kilifi deputy Governor Gideon Saburi spreading the coronavirus in the country.
The President said he hopes that the court will hand Saburi a jail term of up to 10 years for him to serve as an example that no one has a right to risk other people’s lives.
“…the Kililfi Deputy Governor, who is expected to lead by example, flew all the way from Germany traveled to Kilifi through Nairobi and Mombasa while infecting people with the disease just because he is a leader and that is why when he recovered from the virus I ordered he be put behind bars so that it serves as a lesson that no matter your status in society, you have no right to move around infecting people with a disease just because you are a leader. He will remain in custody and I’m praying that the court hands him a jail term of up to 10 years because of the number of people he has infected in this country.” Uhuru said
The president spoke in an interview with journalists from three vernacular radio stations; Innoro FM, Kameme FM, and Coro FMs.
