Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has tested positive for the deadly Covid-19 virus after receiving a jab of AstraZeneca vaccine. In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the former county boss announced he tested for the virus nine days after taking the vaccine.
“I got vaccinated against Covid-19 last Monday (March 29, 2021) which was followed by Covid-19-like reaction three days later. It is my appeal to Kenyans to continue observing the Ministry of Health protocols on containing the spread of Covid-19. Put on face masks, wash your hands with soap and clean flowing water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser to fight the virus,” he wrote on Facebook.
Kidero, who is running to succeed Governor Cyprian Awiti had early last month temporarily suspended all his political activities in Homa Bay County following news that ODM leader Raila Odinga had contracted the virus.
