About a month ago, social media was awash with reports that Juventus football player Christiano Ronaldo had offered his chain of hotels as Covid-19 treatment centres.
“Cristiano Ronaldo’s @PestanaCR7 hotels will become hospitals next week, where patients in Portugal will be treated free of charge. He will pay all medical staff. #COVID19. What a man,” read the tweet.
Ronaldo co-owns the prestigious Pestana CR7 Hotels with the Pestana Hotel Group and people were pretty excited about this news which unfortunately turned out to be a hoax.
Well, you know what is not a hoax? Diamond offering his newly acquired Mikocheni hotels in Tanzania as quarantine facilities as Tanzania grapples with the Coronavirus menace.
He broke the great news on Wasafi FM and revealed that the hotel is currently under renovation but once things are complete, he is offering it as a quarantine facility.
“Nimenunua hoteli maeneo ya Mikocheni, nimeshakabidhiwa documents zangu , ipo kwenye marekebisho kadhaa kisha nitaitambulisha. Hotel ile ambayo nimeinunua niko radhi niitoe kwa serekali kwa muda huu ili iweze kutumika kama karantini au hospitali mpaka pale Corona itakapoisha,” said Diamond Platnumz.
