29 October 2014, 13:53 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - 9 Kenyans, detained at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport have been released and cleared of Ebola.

The nine have been released to their homes after a six hour testing regime followign arrival from Liberia early Wednesday morning, where Ebola has been a major problem.

The health ministry through Cabinet Secretary James Macharia says that the nine, five adults and four children will be monitored for the next 21 days to ensure they do not show enhanced symptoms of Ebola.

" We have taken the contacts of all 9 and will check on them on a daily basis until we are sure they do not have the disease,  Macharia said Wednesday.

The 9 arrived from Liberia Early Wednesday morning and were immediately detained at the airport's Ebola testing facility to determine whether they have the virus.

Macharia said that the 9 had lived in Liberia between a period of 1 and 4 years and have decided to relocate back to the country to escape effects of the disease.

It is understood that other Kenyans have remained in Liberia seeing as they have already built their lives in the country and are not keen on coming back to the country.

" We hear so but if they choose to come back we will take them in, he added.

The Ebola virus has so far hit over 10,000 people, with just over 5,000 dead.

There is yet to be a confirmed Ebola case in Kenya, with the government stating that it has enhanced the levels of checking at all major check-in points in the country.
