Irungu Kang'ata recovering at home after contracting Covid-19

This is the second time Kang'ata has contracted Covid-19

Murang'a Senator, Irungu Kangata

Murang'a Senator Irungu Kang'ata on Friday revealed that he was recovering at home after contracting Covid-19 for the second time in the last 8 months.

The former Senate majority whip said he first got infected last August and followed the necessary Covid-19 protocols by self-isolating after being hospitalized.

The legislator says the second diagnosis came on March 16 and after hospitalization he is now recovering at home.

He adds that he suspects to have contracted the new infection at a public function.

This comes shortly after the Senate had on Wednesday announced that they are reducing the sitting days in parliament to a week because of rising cases of Covid-19 infections.

Senators unitedly endorsed a motion by Majority Leader Samuel Poghisio to revise the House’s calendar and reduce the number of sittings.

The lawmakers will now be sitting on Tuesdays only until June 15.
