Twitter wants to know why Weston Hotel wasn’t closed over cholera outbreak
On Wednesday Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu closed Jacaranda and San Valencia restaurants indefinitely, but remained mum on why Weston Hotel was not closed.
Weston Hotel, which is owned by Deputy President William Ruto, was linked to cholera cases during a science conference last month.
Kenyans on Twitter are seeking answers why the hotel has not been closed like the other two have. They took to social media to vent their frustration and demanding for the closure of the hotel.
Here are some of what has shared on Twitter.

Why wasn't Weston Hotel also closed? There was also a statement from Jacaranda Hotel denying that they catered the KICC event. https://t.co/vGfmJZvwYQ
