A section of Members of the County Assembly of Bungoma who tested positive for Covid-19 have refused to isolate.
This is after Bungoma County recorded 22 news cases, among them the seven MCAs.
According to an insider from the national organs mandated with the tests and who wished to remain anonymous, the County legislators are still mixing with crowds even without observing the very minimal preventive measures.
“I am surprised to see photos of those MCAs in public meetings despite knowing that they are positive,” said the lady when she reached out to this publication.
A spot check by this writer established that some of the affected MCAs attended three meetings in the villages and another meeting at a known hotel along the Kanduyi-Malaba highway.
This comes barely four days after Health CECM Dr. Anthony Walela announced the suspension of some operations due to the fears of spreading the virus.
The statement, read on behalf of the Governor, however, allowed departments offering essential services to continue with operations but under strict observation of preventive measures.
Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati is also isolating himself after some of the officials he had interacted with tested positive.
Last week, Bungoma recorded a shock 108 cases at the Bungoma Prisons, forcing the facility to take swing into action to avoid an outbreak.
The behavior of the MCAs now puts the public at risk. Ironically, the said MCAs are known to be the most vocal in launching attacks at the executive.
Members of the public should now avoid mingling with these careless and useless MCAs who are pausing a harvoc danger to many lives.
