“I don’t know the guy!” Kagwe dismisses Burale rumours

Mutahi Kagwe has responded to the rumours stating that motivational speaker, Robert Burale, is a paid actor faking COVID-19.

After a journalist had asked him about Burale, the Health CS succinctly denied any knowledge of who Burale was.

‘Paid by who?’ Kagwe asks

“I’ve never heard of this guy. You say he has been paid. Paid by who? I don’t know who is supposed to have paid him?” The visibly baffled Mutahi Kagwe said.

Robert Burale, a self-styled motivational speaker, trended for a better part of yesterday (July 8th 2020). He had shared an Instagram Live video of himself in hospital, receiving oxygen after catching COVID-19.

However, due to an alleged past as a conman, many came out sceptical of his situation.

Twitter DCI question Burale

In fact, Twitter DCI, a comical name for Twitter users that dissect every person and photo with a keenness that would make Sherlock Holmes scarlet with jealousy, questioned his dress code. ‘Why would a sick person in the hospital be in designer clothes and a cap?’ They asked.

And thus, from this messy melting pot of opinions, rose the rumours that the Ministry of Health had paid him to scare Kenyans.

The guy is probably sick, but you decided otherwise’

“When it comes to issues like rumours, if I were to respond to every one of them, then I would be very busy,” Mutahi Kagwe said on the matter.

“I do not know who would have paid him, and why he would be pretending,” The CS went on, “if you are not sick, why would you pretend? The guy is probably sick, but you have decided that he is not.”

Mutahi Kagwe responded to the rumours as he was providing updates on the COVID-19 situation in the country.

Today, Kenya recorded its highest number of cases over 24 hours, with 447 people testing positive from 3,803 samples.

The new figures take COVID-19 cases in Kenya to 8,975.
