President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday commissioned five new hospitals in Nairobi county and directed them to offer 24 hour services to residents.
The new health facilities are part of 24 such hospitals being constructed by Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) as part of a broad Government plan to decongest Kenyatta National Hospital, Mama Lucy, Pumwani and Mbagathi hospitals.
The hospitals launched by the Head of State were two level 2 hospitals at Gichagi in Kangemi and Gatina in Kawangware as well as level 3 hospitals in Mukuru Kwa Rueben, Tassia Kwa Ndege and Our Lady of Nazareth in Mukuru Kwa Njenga.
Uhuru, who was accompanied by NMS Director General Mohammed Badi and several senior Government officials, directed public hospitals in Nairobi to offer 24-hour services to ensure city residents access health services whenever they need them.
Instead of someone using money to go and seek medical services at Kenyatta National Hospital, they need to access these services at the facilities which are near them,” Uhuru said.
Hii ni pr and looting avenue for family members.

Inflation n high cost of living is what needs to be addressed by any national leader.
Wajinga waliisha Kenya . AA
I can’t just understand uhurus endgame. What has been doing the last 8 years. What does he think he is trying to achieve in less than a year in office raising taxes to fund projects. I mean even after he’s gone Kenya will still be constructing roads, bridges, schools and other infrastructure.
What’s the rush
He is trying to fit into the hustler nation narrative because everything else has backfired so that people ‘like him’ and to hoodwink gullible Kenyans after increasing VAT on cooking gas,if you cant beat them join them.Even Mutahi Ngunyi was praising the hustler nation in a previous clip
I think he wanted to be a statesman, a loved one at that after retiring - I think he mistook the multitudes that voted him in, he thought they did it for him. SHida is that time does not stand still, and ten years is a very short time.
Looking at it at a different view, this is a case of quantity versus quality. If i were him i would put measures inplace to improve the quality of health care in the country. For instance good package for healthcare work force and also improved working conditions. And use NHIF to revolutionaze the poor access to heathcare. Currently things kwa ground ni different sana. Medics are demotivated ndio sababu you find them doing private practice despite earning taxe payers money. Wenye are not into private practice utawapata wanaserve clients while still watching football in their phones.
:D:D: sad. People sacrifice and put their lives in danger so that you can live peaceably. The very least thing you can do to respect them is to honour their code. Reminds me of the Thai crown prince [now king] wearing …what was that? [ATTACH=full]373245[/ATTACH]
