SUMMARY

“There is a question about somebody called Robert Murathe…I have never heard of this guy.

“You are saying he has been paid…by who? What is he doing? If I was to respond to every rumour I would be very busy,” said Kagwe.

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Thursday stated that he has never heard of Robert Burale. The preacher had been the subject of online debate after he came out to reveal that he tested positive for Coronavirus.

Many Kenyans online claimed that it was a PR stunt and alleged that Burale had been paid to pull off the move.

While addressing the public in Mombasa, CS Kagwe, however, said that he does not know Burale, adding that he cannot respond to rumours.

“There is a question about somebody called Robert Murathe…I have never heard of this guy.

“You are saying he has been paid…by who? What is he doing? If I was to respond to every rumour I would be very busy,” said Kagwe.

Adding: “I honestly do not know about him and why he would be pretending. If you are not sick why would you pretend you are? He is probably sick but you have decided he is not.”

While giving an update on his health from his hospital bed, Burale earlier cautioned Kenyans from taking the pandemic lightly.

“I beg you, don’t get to a pace that you have to buy oxygen, nimesema ya kutosha, mbarikiwe. My oxygen levels are getting better. Guys please stay safe, God bless you, pray for one another,” he said.

He urged Kenyans to be mindful of senior citizens as they are vulnerable to the virus.

“Let this be a lesson to Kenyans who are just playing around and making fun, you know if you are not careful you will take this thing to your old parents and put them at risk. So guys stay safe, wacha mimi nipambane na hali yangu but one day I know I will give a testimony,” added Buurale.
