Thursday, June 4, 2020 – Health CS Mutahi Kagwe has revealed that the Government is contemplating taking drastic measure against people escaping from quarantine facilities.
Some of the measures include publishing pictures and details of those individuals on local newspapers to alert the public.
The CS said some Kenyans who are put under house quarantine have come up with devious means to dupe the authorities.
For instance, the CS said that there is an individual, whose movements are being traced, that decided to leave the phone at Kawangware and travelled to and from Thika town.
“When you put your phone down, we even have somebody who went with the phone and because they know we are tracing them leaves the phone somewhere,” Mr Kagwe said.
“Travels from Kawangware goes all the way towards Thika comes back from Thika, the friends are all telling us this is where this guy is.”
“At some point when we get to the point where we know that some people are running away and they are out there.”
“There is nothing to stop the Ministry of Health from publishing photographs in the newspaper and telling them these persons have run away from a quarantine facility and if you see them please call the police or call us,” he added.
