Do rape claims signify deeper problems at Kenyatta N. Hospital?

The rot at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) is definitely deeper, considering the horrifying rape claims that have been recently brought to the public limelight. A move by the Hospital CEO Lily Koros to vehemently deny the claims even before investigations were done is a pointer that there is more than meets the eye in this matter.
What is evident from all this is that the institution is simply protecting its rogue workers and staff from negative publicity and protecting its tainted image in the eyes of the public. No woman, in their right frame of mind, can wake up one morning and claim that they were sexually assaulted in the precincts of the hospital.
It is highly unlikely that many women like those we saw narrating their sad tales in the hands of KNH staff are wrong or made up their claims. As a mother and a lawmaker, I urge the Government through its relevant agencies to get to the bottom of the matter.
The management of KNH should also be grilled since they seem to be hiding a lot from the public and often want to protect their staff.
