A prominent Kenyan doctor Stephen Karanja who became an anti-vaccine campaigner and conspiracy theorist has died from the disease.
Dr Stephen Karanja said it was unnecessary to vaccinate Kenyans against Covid-19.
Instead, he argued for steam inhalation and a cocktail of drugs, including hydroxychloroquine and zinc.
He also spread conspiracy theories, involving Bill Gates and population control.
Dr Karanja died on Thursday in the high dependency unit of a private hospital in the capital Nairobi.
More than 800,000 Kenyans have now been vaccinated, with no severe side effects being reported.\
