Kenyans don’t believe socialite pastor and motivational speaker Robert Burale is Covid-19 positive.
The cunning pastor whose video live on Instagram has gone viral says he has Covid-19 and has been put on oxygen at the Nairobi Hospital.
COVID-19 cases in Kenya has surpassed 8000. Over 160 people have died and many more livelihoods destroyed because of the slow down in economy that has led many firms to shut down, salary cuts and retrenchments.

The divorcee Burale is being accused of taking advantage of the near opening or churches to remind his congregants that he is ‘around’ and also to have great motivational speeches about beating Covid-19 which will attract more offerings and tithe.
Here are some of the opinions we sampled from Kenyans about Burale’s sickness.
Burale is the first among many other preachers who will try to attract followers and congregants with stories of having recovered from a deadly disease. It is symbolic of 'healing and anointing' and such personalities love it. I wish they did the same with all other diseases

I don’t believe Robert Burale … He has a history of fraud and deception…he should permit Nairobi Hospital to issue an official statement confirming it. Burale is a duplicitous liar and conman.

The Ministry of Health advises that Kenyans should wear face masks while in public, wash hands with soap and running water, practice social distance and eat healthy to avoid Covid-19 infection.
