    We can, however, confirm that the contraption worn by the governor is actually a head and eye massager that costs approximately Ksh 30,000.

    According to an American-based manufacturer of a device similar to what Sonko had donned, it can massage the eyes and head, calm the mind and soothe the nerves.

    “The iDream1260 adopts air pressure, vibration, and heat compression massaging technology to massage the regions around your head and eyes (excluding the eye and eyelid).

    It allows you to enjoy peaceful music while massaging, further relaxing your head and eyes," states Breo -the company manufacturing the device, on their website.

    As the Covid-19 pandemic spreads into more countries, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that preventive gear such as face masks should be left to health workers caring for Covid-9 patients.

    WHO maintains that social distancing and regular & thorough cleaning of hands is still the best meausure to keep the deadly virus at bay.

    Governor Sonko reiterated the importance of the fumigation exercise saying that since most people are indoors it would allow the county and health officials to carry out their tasks unhindered

    "This is a global pandemic. What we are doing is minimising the infections by carrying out the sanitization exercise,” he stated.

    The governor was in the company of Health CEC Hitan Majevdia  and other health officials as they fumigated key public and trading areas in Nairobi’s Eastlands area.

    “We will be in Eastleigh all day today since it is an expansive area with other sections of Nairobi being covered in days to come. We shall not relent until the virus is defeated,” vowed Hitan.
