The ODM boss tested positive after a series of nationwide rallies to drum support for the Building Bridges Initiative bill that’s now before parliament.

Below is the full statement about his new status.

“I have tested NEGATIVE for Covid-19. The last three weeks have been the most trying but reflective; most humbling but hopeful. Unfortunately this virus has claimed the lives of our loved ones, frontline soldiers and it is still knocking on our homes.

We should not give up! We are not about to give up! We shall overcome! God is faithful.”
