The unwelcoming habit of the residents in Mombasa Old Town has raised eyebrows after physically abusing and threatening health workers who had gone for the mass testing in the area yesterday. Apart from low turn out, they went ahead blocking the feeder roads at the old town hindering the medical team and ambulances from accessing “their” home.
Following the uncalled for behavior, the Public Health Officer Aisha Abubakar has shifted the exercise to Likoni Sub County. We are waiting for the national government to intervene, said the Health Officer.
Abubakari was disappointed by the culture of the residents as the cases of the deadly COVID 19 rise every day as it was already named as one of the hotspots in Kenya with 39 cases.
