Ciru Muriuki Reveals Dad Succumbed to COVID-19

Just a month after losing her father, on Friday, Ciru Muriuki revealed that he succumbed to COVID-19. In a series of tweets, the celebrated journalist narrated an interaction with a petrol station attendant who happened to say that the pandemic was but a fake. “This weekend while at a petrol station, I struck up a conversation with the attendant, who proceeded to tell me that COVID-19 is fake, a ploy to get donor funds”, tweeted Ciru, adding that the attendant’s remarks “broke” her “because my father died of COVID-19.”

She also confirmed to have contracted the virus herself, “I also contracted the virus, and had to mourn my dad in almost complete solitude. I cannot think of anything worse”, and issued a warning to complacent Kenyans, “This thing is real. Complacence is our worst enemy.”

Netizens flooded her timeline with comforting messages following the statement.
