Babies who died after a measles vaccination went wrong in Elgeyo Marakwet buried

13, Sep 2015

The funeral service for two babies who died after a measles vaccination went wrong provided a platform for Elgeyo Marakwet politicians to air their differences over health functions in the county. Marakwet East MP Kangogo Bowen blamed the deaths on the county administration and suggested legal action be taken. However, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen insisted it was too early to blame professional negligence for the deaths but instead called on county and national government stakeholders to discuss compensation with affected families out of court.
