Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga has cleared the air over claims that he may have contacted coast leaders suspected to have coronavirus.
Mr. Odinga through his personal secretary Denis Onyango dismissed allegations that he had met the Kilifi County Deputy Governor who tested positive for coronavirus.
In the statement, Odinga insisted that it has been strictly complying with the directives issued by the Government since the first case of the Coronavirus was reported in the country.
His staff says the party leader suspended travels outside the country, public gatherings and meetings as had been advised by health experts.
“Mr. Odinga has been operating mostly from home while transacting official business online. In addition, he has since suspended operations at his Capitol Hill offices to minimize human traffic to the office.
“Upon suspending physical operations of his Capitol Hill offices, and in order to minimize crowding, Mr. Odinga made a low-key visit to Mombasa mid-last week for a few days of rest, where he stayed in his house,” Onyango indicated in a public statement.
On his recent meeting with a host of coast leaders, Mr. Odinga has maintained that he did not meet with any of the leaders of the Coastal counties or their deputies, except the Deputy Governor of Mombasa County Dr. William Kingi.
He has asked the general public to treat reports indicating otherwise as lies and malice as he did not meet the Kilifi Deputy Governor who has hit headlines for refusing to go into self-isolation after a visit to Germany.
Last week, Mr. Odinga also met coast businessman Suleiman Shabhal with the BBI talks being part of their agenda.
