Former NTV’s award-winning journalist Namukabo Werunga has tested positive for Covid19.
Werunga now works with The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Nairobi Berau.
“The last four months I have told nothing but Covid-19 related stories. This was my most recent assignment, I reported on the reopening of worship facilities in Kenya, and why many faithful are still worshiping from home.”
Ms. Namukabo joins the list of influential journalists in Kenya who have tested positive for the virus.
Journalist Jeff Koinange, Stephen Leto (both working at Citizen Tv)and now Gidi of Radio Jambo have since announced that they tested positive for the disease.
“Take precaution, and then take another precaution. Develop some fear of this disease. It is real and anyone can get infected.” Cautioned Werunga on Facebook.
Kenya has since recorded more than ten thousand cases of Covid19 with a big number of patients recovering. The World Health Organization has warned that there is no cure for Covid19 yet.
