Odinga was diagnosed with the virus on Thursday after an extensive tour of the coast region during which he drummed up support for the Building Bridges Initiative Constitutional Amendment Bill.

The heightened political activities in the country triggered by the clamour for constitutional changes and the 2022 succession politics have been cited as catalyzers of the spike in COVID-19 cases in recent days.

In a deliberate move aimed at containing the spread of the virus, President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday banned all forms of political gatherings and limited the attendance of social events and burials to 100.

The Head of State also extended the nationwide night curfew for another 60 days.

We have issued this as an order that whoever dares to break this directive will, will be dealt with in accordance with the laws of our country of Kenya, irrelevant of his or her social, economic or political status,” the President warned.
