Kitui DCI boss Nzioka Singi was forced to visit the priest and warned him of arrest if he did not comply but he again continued with the behavior.

Singi is reported to have told him how lucky he was not to have any signs of the virus including high temperature but he needed to stay home.

On Saturday things changed when the medical team visited him saying he was just a suspected case who displayed some symptoms and was to undergo est to verify otherwise.
