BY UPESI REPORTER,NAIROBI,2ND NOV,2020-Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has apologised over a fake death alert involving former county employee Dr Robert Ayisi.

This comes after the governor sent out an alert announcing the death of the former County Secretary and Health CEC.

“It is with great sorrow and sadness that I announce the death of Dr. Robert Ayisi……. He will be remembered for his role in streamlining the health sector in Nairobi county. My deepest condolences to his family, relatives and friends,” read part of Sonko’s tweet.

But later on it emerged that the former county staff was not dead as claimed.

Reports indicated that Ayisi was admitted at the Mater Hospital’s HDU.

As a result, Sonko in his retraction deleted the tweet and promised to personally apologise to the family.

“There was a technicality that happened. Some of our staff sent out the alert without proper consultation,” Elkana Jacob said.

According to him, the two employees had been directed to proceed on compulsory leave to pave the way into investigations on why they sent the alert without consulting the family.
