Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has tested positive for Covid-19, days after receiving a vaccine for the virus.

Kidero and members of his family had gone for Coronavirus tests but he is the only one who tested positive.

The former governor, who is eyeing the Homa Bay County gubernatorial seat in the 2022 General Election, confirmed that he would proceed to self-isolation for a fortnight, as required. 

"As a family, We all had Covid tests done yesterday, whose results I have just received. Everybody else is negative except me. I am proceeding on total and complete isolation for the next two weeks," said Kidero.


This comes after Kidero was vaccinated against Covid-19 on March 29.

The former Nairobi County boss has urged all his contacts to get tested for the virus amid a surge in fresh cases during the third wave.

"I advise our team members, whom I’ve been in contact with to go and have themselves tested for Covid immediately. It's my appeal to Kenyans to continue observing the ministry of health protocols on Covid," he added.
