Kilifi Deputy Governor Gideon Saburi has been arrested outside the Coast General Hospital upon discharge.
The Covid-19 survivor is to face charges for refusing to isolate himself.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said on Thursday Saburi was declared fit after all the three tests he was subjected to turned negative bringing the number of those who have healed from the virus to three.
The CS, however, stated that Saburi will now be left to fight his woes in court after the government said that he will be charged for failing to self-quarantine when he arrived in the country from a German trip.
Saburi had previously apologised to Kilifi residents for unknowingly interacting with them when he was sick.
