Cholera outbreak at Ruto’s Weston Hotel

Published

on

Weston Hotel, along Lang'ata Road, is owned by Deputy President William Ruto.

A cholera outbreak has been reported at Weston Hotel in Nairobi where some guests, including doctors, are attending a science conference, the Nation reports.

Dr George Nyale, chairman of the conference, confirmed the outbreak, saying though that there is no cause for alarm. “We have contingency measures on the ground” he said.

He said tests are being run in the hotel, owned by Deputy President William Ruto, and there are ambulances on standby to take people to the hospital. A source who requested not to be named told Nation that at least 47 people had tested positive for the disease.

The forum, called “The Kenya International Scientific Lung Health Conference”, is organised by the Ministry of Health. It began on Tuesday and is scheduled to end on Friday.

It was not immediately clear what has caused the outbreak of the disease and the high-class facility.
