SUMMARY

Asked whether the man had any health conditions, Mburu said he was not aware but the deceased was a polite man who lived alone.

Police officers who arrived at the scene immediately got in touch with officials from the Ministry of Health and the building was fumigated.

A man was found dead inside his house in Nairobi’s Umoja Estate on Saturday morning.

According to the caretaker, Joseph Mburu, he noticed something unusual as he was about to clean the building.

“As I was walking down the stairs I realized that one door was open. I went towards it and that is when I saw the man lying on the floor.

“I rushed to the nearest police post and reported the incident,” he said.

Asked whether the man had any health conditions, Mburu said he was not aware but the deceased was a polite man who lived alone.

Police officers who arrived at the scene immediately got in touch with officials from the Ministry of Health and the building was fumigated.

A doctor also examined the body but said a comprehensive report would be given once the cause of death has been ascertained.

Despite instructions from police to observe social distancing due to Coronavirus, neighbours assembled as they craned their necks to catch a glimpse of the body.

The body was later taken away by police officers.

On Saturday, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe instructed Kenyans visiting supermarkets to start wearing protective masks.

Kagwe said it would be prudent to avoid transmissions in such spaces since local transmission is on the rise.

He further called upon the youth to use their energy to fight Coronavirus in the country by practicing social distancing and avoiding unnecessary travel.

“If you travel upcountry there is a possibility you are going to kill your parents and grandparents.

“Be part of the solution…we can overcome this,” said Kagwe.

In the last 24 hours, 372 people had been tested for Coronavirus and four were positive.

Among the four, three are Kenyans and one is a Pakistan national.
