The governor together with all of his staff members usually undergo the COVID-19 test after every two weeks just to make sure that they are safe.

Chief of staff, Mr. Joab Tumbo, on the other hand, retaliated that the case has not been brought to his attention.

“I am not aware of the issue. But let me find out and get back. Mombasa Beach Hotel is a government facility and if there were, I would have been informed,” Tumbo told The Star.
