Some 90 police officers have been admitted to hospital with suspected cases of cholera, Kenya’s ministry of health has said.
It added that the officers are suspected to have caught the infection from something they ate or drank in a canteen in the capital, Nairobi:
The Star newspaper reports that the officers were on duty last week during the hearing of the presidential petition, which ended last Friday.
It quotes the capital’s governor Mike Sonko saying that the situation was under control:
“I appeal to all people not to panic as adequate controls have been put in place to prevent the spread of the disease,” he said.
