Police are hunting down Garsen Member of Parliament (MP) Ali Wario who refused to be screened for Coronavirus after travelling to Kilifi County.

MP Wario allegedly threw away temperature testing kits and threatened medics at the Kinangoni check-point.

He then went on to dismantle barricades that had been placed at the check-point and sped off in his vehicle.

"Our field officers tried to speak to him about the screening but he refused and threatened to interfere with the entire exercise if he was not allowed to pass," Tana River Health CEC Javan Bonaya told reporters.

MP explains why he fled Coronavirus screening

Tana River County Commissioner Oning'oi Ole'Sosio gave orders for the MP to be arrested on the spot and charged with endangering the lives of the county's residents.

The MP later explained his behaviour saying that he was not convinced on the efficiency of the testing kits.

"I was fearing to get into contact with their testing equipment at the roadblock their kits were not up standard," he stated.
