Detectives have camped at the Coast General Hospital in Mombasa to arrest Kilifi deputy governor Gideon Saburi.
Saburi put many at risk after attending official county functions following his return from Germany.
On Thursday, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe announced that Saburi has been discharged after recovering from COVID-19.
The CS said the process to prosecute him can now begin.
“I’m pleased to announce that deputy governor of Kilifi has fully recovered after being subjected to three tests and coming out negative,” Kagwe said.
The Kilifi Deputy Governor has however not left the isolation centre at the Coast General hospital
The detectives camped at the hospital from 9am but the DG is yet to come out claiming he is waiting for a pair of clothes to change.
