Relations between the association and the county government worsened after the members accused county hospitals of denying Mr Musa treatment. On Tuesday last week the boda boda operators demonstrated at the Malindi sub-county hospital to protest at the alleged neglect. The boda boda riders, hooting and shouting at the entrance of the hospital, brought operations to a halt as they demanded to be told why Musa was allegedly left unattended for two hours. However, the Kilifi health CEC, Omar Anisa, insisted that medical personnel had done their best to save the patient, but his condition worsened as he was about to be taken for an X-ray.
