Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has claimed that Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga has not fully recovered from COVID-19 and he should at home taking herbal medicine.
The legislature explained that as a COVID-19 survivor himself, the journey to recovery is more challenging than being infected.
He noted that the ODM leader should be at home resting while drinking soup, Maasai herbs, and doing light exercises.
“Noooooo! As a Covid-19 survivor, I can tell you that the recovery phase is more challenging than the infection phase. Baba is not OK. He needs to be at home taking goat soup, Maasai herbs, and light exercises,” he said.
Moses Kuria’s remarks came after Raila who had tested positive for COVID-19 last month joined President Uhuru at State House where he said that he had been put on drugs for the first five days of his hospitalization, after which also he used herbal medicine when he got discharged.
Raila had been admitted to the Nairobi Hospital on Tuesday 9, March, after complaining of fatigue, testing positive for COVID-19 two days later following a vigorous tour at the Coast where he had gone to popularize the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
He added that despite receiving a mixture of herbal drugs, he had also been steaming a lot in the evening.
He added that he was also on oxygen for a while, a process that one needs to be disciplined and follow the doctor’s instructions.
Raila also accompanied President Uhuru Kenyatta as they inspected various projects by the Nairobi Metropolitan service (NMS) in the Nairobi CBD.
While speaking to the public, Raila thanked God for being there for him in his time of need. He also thanked the head of state for visiting him at home.
He noted that he had been in critical condition for the past three weeks.
The veteran politician also touched on the Kenyans who were greatly affected by the new COVID-19 measures.
He said that Kenyans are living in difficult times and he understands that the country is in the middle of a pandemic.
He added that the economy is deteriorating and many Kenyans are suffering which is a pity.
He further added that however, Kenyan lives are more important and need to be protected and that was why the President issued the current COVID-19 restrictions.
