Bondo police officers undergo mandatory Covid-19 test

Police officers and all staffs at the Bondo police station have undergone mandatory Covid-19 tests following directives from Siaya County Police Commander, Mr. Francis Kooli.

The directive comes in the wake of corona positive test results from a senior police officer at the station who died on Tuesday morning after experiencing breathing difficulties and high fever.

According to Kooli, all officers at the station should be tested for Covid-19 to safeguard their health and that of their families.

He stated that right now they are not taking chances noting that they are also adhering to government guidelines on preventing and managing the spread of the corona virus.

The exercise that started in the morning has seen police officers both from the regular and the Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit (CIPU) together with chiefs and assistant chiefs tested.

Kooli has however stated that the testing exercise was not necessarily being done because of the death of Bondo Sub-County Police Commander Anthony Wafula.

The late Wafula’s body was removed from Bondo sub-county hospital Thursday morning and taken to his rural home in Lukuyani within Kakamega County for immediate burial after the results after death indicated he died of Covid-19.

Meanwhile, a journalist who was arrested at the Bondo sub-county hospital mortuary while trying to capture the removal of the body has since been released and his phone that was confiscated returned.

The Nation newspaper journalist Dickens Wasonga was released without being charged neither was he told the reason why he was arrested.
