Uncontrolled tears caused by sad memories of people losing their loved ones in hospitals marked Senator Samuel Seki’s weeklong meetings in Kajiado on Tuesday.
In Kajiado town, Edward Saipa, shocked county health stakeholders’ when he disclosed the pain his mother went through before breathing her last at the Kajiado referral hospital.
“My mother had cancer and had been referred to Kenyatta National Hospital from our county referral hospital in Kajiado. At the time, there was no ambulance and the only one around had no fuel,” Saipa said.
Saipa said his mother who was undergoing a lot of pain held on to him until she died as medical officers watched helplessly.
In Kitengela town, Naomi Nanjala, shocked the stakeholders with tales of her struggles when she was admitted to the Kitengela subcounty hospital maternity.
“I went into pain and had to struggle for almost one hour as no doctor or a nurse was in sight. I went through excruciating pain and by the time a nurse came in, I was almost passing out,” she said.
