He revealed that he suddenly fell sick after a stressful engagement last week.
The Attorney-General said:
“Towards the end of a very stressful last week, I became slightly sick with fatigue and at the same time catarrh and sore throat. Since I was not sure of what it was, doctors prescribed the standard malaria drugs for me, coartem and vitamin c tablets which I took.
“As at Friday 3rd July, I started feeling better but in order to be more careful, conscious of my type of work which involves meeting with hundreds of people every day, I decided to invite the state Corvid-19 test team that took my samples on the 4th of July, 2020.
“As at Monday, July 6, I was already feeling a lot better but the result of the test I took days earlier returned positive for Covid-19. I have moved into isolation. All the signs of illness are gone now and I am strong and in high spirit. I thank all of you for your prayers.”
