The officer confirmed that Mr Wafula’s samples were taken to Kemri labs in Kisumu for Covid-19 tests.

“We are doing this to establish if he had Covid-19 given the symptoms and going by the fact that he had recently travelled to Nairobi,” he said.

He added, “We have lost a dependable and reliable officer who was known to work without being supervised.”
