A few days ago, President Uhuru Kenyatta suspended house sittings of both the National Assembly and the Senate, after a report emerged that several honorable members were infected with the virus.
Last week, Kiambaa MP, Paul Koinange, succumbed to the virus and many MPs are said to be hospitalized after the deadly virus attacked the bicameral house.
