He told Kenyan newspaper The Star;

‘Someone reported that the attackers saw the man staggering. They approached him, started an argument and beat him up.

‘Kotini met a group of youths and an argument ensued as the youths took advantage of his drunkenness and started accusing him of suffering from coronavirus.’
