A woman has killed herself in a government-designated quarantine facility hours after landing in Kenya.
Like many others, the lady had just arrived in the country from South Africa and was led to a quarantine facility, Kenya Industrial Training Institute (KITI) to be precise.
After arriving at the facility, she aired her complaints about the place. She even asked to be allowed to quarantine at a hotel since she could afford one.
“Yesterday, she complained that the conditions are deplorable and had requested to be taken to a hotel for quarantine as she could afford, but the health officials were hesitant”, one those in quarantine said.
She was in her room but there were four others in neighbouring rooms. There was loud music blasting from her room but no one thought something was wrong at the time. It was until medical officials found her body hanging in her room while they were going around taking their temperatures.
She is not the first person to complain about the facility. People have been complaining about lack of food and other necessities while on the mandatory quarantine.
