Rowdy youths disrupt free medical camp

By John Mondoh | November 30th 2015

A free medical camp organised by well-wishers at Mayenje dispensary, Matayos sub-county, was yesterday disrupted by a group of youths. The youngsters are alleged to be supporters of area parliamentarian Geofrey Odanga.

The free medical check-up was meant to help locals get treatment at no cost following the over two weeks strike by health officers in the county.

Mr Odanga denied the allegations, saying he does not have a hand in the chaos. He maintained that those who caused the chaos acted on their own.

"I have no hand in that and in fact I would like them to take the services to my home since my family is also suffering from the current health crisis in the county. Let the individuals take personal responsibility for their actions," Odanga told The Standard.
