Philip Etale, the ODM Party’s Director of Communications has tested positive for coronavirus.
After being screened for the virus, Etale posted on Twitter that his results came back positive.
PHILIP ETALE is the communications director at the ODM PARTY. He was heavily involved in the Matungu campaign trail seeking votes for the ODM CANDIDATE.
He blogs and writes on behalf of ODM party leader Raila Odinga who is also ADMITTED due to corona.
Last week he was placed on oxygen at a NAIROBI HOSPITAL with corona like symptoms.
This morning he has posted on Facebook to say he is responding well.
He, on the other hand, exuded confidence in his ability to defeat COVID-19, with messages of support pouring in through social media.
“POSITIVE… Although devastated; I remain strong, determined and in high spirits. By His stripes, I will triumph. I will be healed. Please pray for me dear friends. In God I Trust,” read his tweet.
This comes just two days after Raila Odinga, his Orange Party boss, tested positive for COVID-19.
Raila is responding well to care at Nairobi Hospital, according to consultant neurosurgeon David Oluoch-Olunya.
