Waititu failed to appear in court for the pretrial of his 550 million shilling corruption case on Monday after allegedly testing positive for COVID-19. 

The court further directed Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist board to appoint a team of three doctors who will examine the former governor.

However, Waititu’s lawyer had objected to the directive claiming that his right to privacy would be infringed a claim that was dismissed by the prosecution.
