Police have embarked on a man hunt for the mother while the said clinic in Sagana town has been closed down by the Public Health Officials from Kirinyaga County. Led by the County Director of Public Health Evans Kago, the officials said the suspect has been running the facility illegally. “The facility does meet the required health standards and neither does its owner have the necessary medical qualifications to operate the clinic but since police have been able to arrest him, we will ensure he does not carry out his illegal and criminal activities in this county,” Kago said. Deputy Governor Peter Ndambiri who visited the scene upon learning of the incident directed County health officials and the Enforcement team to be extra vigilant to eradicate such incidents in future.
