Father of newborn twins pleads for help to bury wife.
Robert Omondi, bereaved father of newborn twins is calling out for well wishers to come on board to help him clear the morgue bill and bury his wife.
Omondi also stated that he is in need of money to cater for the medical bills of the newborn babies.
He narrated that his twins were admitted to Kenyatta national hospital because of complications. The doctors diagnosed the two with Jaundice which has been worsening.
Apparently, Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja had promised to come through but he has not. The morgue bill stands at ksh.12,000.
Omondi said,”I still wait in hope. I know the governor is a truthful person who keeps his word. I’m still waiting for him at my house as he had promised to visit. I hope for the best.”
Omondi’s wife experienced hemorrhage which caused her death. Omondi stated that if the doctors at mama lucy had quickly intervened, they would have saved the life of his wife.
Postmortem results indicated that the late mother of the twins succumbed to heavy bleeding and increased intracranial pressure (ICP) exerted by fluids inside the brain tissue.
The hospital pathologist explained.”As a result of my examination, I formed the opinion that the cause of death was raised intracranial pressure, pulmonary oedema, pre-eclampsia and post-partum haemorrhage.
Earlier, Nairobi governor, Johnson Sakaja had visited Mama Lucy hospital.
He noted the overcrowding at the hospital and promised to change the state of the hospital.
Sakaja said,”The situation is not good. I apologise on behalf of the previous administration as well as the NMS for the state of things. We will take better care of you.”
His excellency Governor Johnson Sakaja appointed Professor Olive Mugenga was appointed to lead the task force that includes former chief administrative secretary in the Ministry of Health, Mercy Mwangangi, and Amref Health Africa CEO Githinji Gitahi.
