Amos Wako: Covid-19 Made me Realise Wealth And Power Are Vanity

Busia Senator Amos Wako was one of the top dignitaries in the country to have contracted the dreadful Covid-19 infection in the recent past. He was admitted to a city hospital and was put under the Intensive Care Unit for 3 weeks.

While speaking to Kenya Broadcasting Corporation, the 74-year-old revealed that was a near-death experience that made him revise his priorities and started to look at what matters most in his life.

“That’s when my thinking changed. I could not be afforded even one hour to get back to my house, collect what I wanted and voluntarily surrender myself at the hospital,” Wako said as quoted by The Star.

He added that the doctors at the hospice told him not to interfere with the oxygen tubes as a small mistake will render him dead within 2 minutes.

The former Attorney General said he started experiencing symptoms like breathlessness, coughing, and intermittent fever which he ignored. All that happened after attending burials of former Cabinet Simon Nyachae and late former Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji.

He further added that he went through a lot and would not wish the same on anybody.
