“I contracted it (Covid-19) while on the campaign trail during the recent by-elections in Naivasha,” he confirmed.

“It was around the same time Baba (Raila Odinga) announced he had it. I was admitted to the hospital and it was not only me. Very many politicians have been unwell and on treatment but it appears some do not want to publicly talk about it. This thing is not a joke," Kamanda added.
