15 Apr 2020 / Mombasa, Kenya

The Ministry of Health is set to start mass testing of Covid-19 at the Kenya Ports Authority. This comes as dock workers raised concerns over the spread of the virus within the port community.

The Dock Workers' Union has threatened to mobilise more than 5,000 of its members who work at the Port of Mombasa to go on strike if the management does not adhere to Ministry of Health requirements to prevent the spread of the virus.
