CS Kagwe also donated 4,000 Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), and 4,000 masks to healthcare workers.
Also present was Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya who noted that the county’s testing capacity is relatively low.
He also stated that Sh105 million has been set aside for the fight against Coronavirus.
Earlier on in the day CS Kagwe’s motorcade was pelted with stones by angry residents who accused the governor of demolishing their stalls for the former’s arrival.
The irate traders were led by Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala and Lurambi MP Titus Khamala.
“I am disappointed by Oparanya for being heartless. He knows very well that currently, due to the coronavirus crisis, Kenyans are facing financial hardships, yet he is at the forefront in demolishing the business stalls that his people are using to eke a living,” Malala told K24 Digital.
