visit to Kenyatta National Hospital, we met Owiro lying in his bed with a swollen left leg, his pain evident.
Since his admission, he claims doctors have never attended to him except offering him tembes to dull his pain.
“Passaris gave out Sh1, 500 for activating my NHIF card and left me with promises which are yet to be fulfilled. I have never seen her since. I am just rotting in this bed with no services from the doctors because they are demanding a down payment and I have no money,” he says.
Doctor Omanyo confirms that Owiro suffered a hip bone fracture as well as an injury to his right leg which requires Sh500, 000 to fix.
But Owiro says he has no snowball’s chance in hell of getting his hands on that kind of money.
“I am just a vendor of second-hand clothes who barely makes enough to feed my family. So where do I get half a million shillings?” he poses.
“Since I was admitted, only Esther Passaris, Simba Arati and Amolo Otiende have paid me a visit. But even Raila himself has never set foot here,” he says.
Strangely, no police officer has come to question him or ask for a statement about the incident that led to his hospitalisation.
This is the reason many of these people are out in the streets, they think their life circumstances will changed drastically if Raila is elected, unbeknown to them things will remain the same or get worse.
The government should show some good will, step in and help this man he has a family who depends on him. ….and perhaps he will leave that hospital a little wiser.
What this guy and other victims don’t realize is they would have been preferred dead, when they are dead it’s better for their politicians to talk about police brutality, massacres and genocide and they will have a day to be remembered so the same politicians can incite more people to follow the ones being remembered.
They choose to profile themselves! Would you say that the government can discriminate any community in the Kenya we are in today? And whenever the government reaches out to them they simply throw shit at the same government!
