Officers at the Bondo Police Station on Thursday underwent compulsory COVID-19 tests after their deceased boss tested positive for the virus.

A senior medical officer of health at the Bondo Sub-county Hospital confirmed on Wednesday evening that samples had been tested from the body of the late Commander Anthony Wafula.

The body was removed from the mortuary on Thursday morning for immediate burial at his Lukuyani home in Kakamega amidst drama after the wife dismissed the positive results.

During the scuffle, two journalists Dickens Wasonga (Nation newspaper) and Brian Ondeng’ (KNA) were arrested and their phones confiscated after they allegedly tried to record the altercation.

They have since been released and their phones returned to them.

Meanwhile, Siaya County Police Commander Francis Kooli said all officers at the Bondo station be tested for their safety and that of their families.

He stated that this is also in order to comply with the government directives on combating the spread of coronavirus.

Officers both from the regular police force, Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit (CIPU) as well as chiefs and assistant chiefs were all tested for COVID-19.
