Locals thwart attempt to transfer medical equipment
SEE ALSO :The ‘curse’ of Egyptian presidentsJohn Lang’at, a local leader, lashed out at the county government for hoodwinking residents by supplying the medical equipment and attempting to transfer the same to another hospital after a week. “Women who saw the officers loading the equipment onto the lorry raised the alarm and we moved in and ordered the county staff to offload it,” he said. Mr Lang’at identified some of the materials loaded onto the lorry as bed sheets, assorted medicines and medical equipment. “The county officers claimed the batch delivered to the health centre was meant for another hospital but we are not buying that,” he said. A resident, Mercy Makimei, said they would not allow any equipment to be removed from the hospital unless the county brought in other appliances for the new health centre. Maella MCA Kamanu Gathariki said he had consulted County Health Executive who promised to intervene.
