Reinstatement Of Suspended Dr Catherine Mutindi Exposes Sonko’s Propaganda On Pumwani Hospital

Published

Known for being over reactive and playing to public emotions as opposed to facts, the Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko In September suspended suspended the hospital superintendent & doctor in-charge. It was alleged that the staff switched off the power in the new born unit. Governor conducted an impromptu visit that found bodies stuffed in boxes at the storeroom.

In the public eye, the governor did the right thing, however, behind the scenes, he failed to recognize and address the systemic failures that had led to his expose.

According to a summary report on operation at the hospital in the period under focus in September, a total of 156 deliveries were made and only 6 deaths registered. On accusations of hiding bodies, the report said that The hospital didn’t a holding room for dead bodies. The room had a total of eleven (11) bodies.

“These bodies are ferried to City Mortuary for disposal on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Of the eleven (11) bodies in the holding room: • Four (4) were to be ferried to City Mortuary on Friday 14th September, 2018 • Six (6) who died over the weekend will be ferried today to City Mortuary. • One (1) non-tagged neonate is not from the hospital un-procedurally within the holding area with no documentation availed by the mortician.” Said the report on the discovered bodies that the governor live-streamed to his followers on Facebook.

Because of poor facilitation, the staff have to be innovative, “ There are no body bags to keep the deceased in before transfer to the morgue. Hospital staff have to make do with what’s available. Carton boxes and plastic disposal bags are the most available temporary storage for these little angels. Every deceased person, irrespective of age, is registered in the death notification register provided by the registrar of persons (births and deaths). Each of these little ones is moved to city mortuary with an attached notification. They are not just statistics.” Said Dr. Bosire.

Dr Catherine Munini the suspended medical superintendent at Pumwani has now been reinstated and redeployed to Mbagathi Hospital after it emerged that her rushed suspension was discredited that it was unfair and unthought over given the fact that at the time she was outside the country in Zambia amid more so that the limiting factors at hand on handling bodies hadn’t been addressed.

Questions now hangs on how suspended doctors like Dr. Kamau aren’t reinstated since they were all suspended over disapproved reasons as Dr. Catherine who’s now the boss at Mbagathi. Dr Joseph Karani has been moved to Pumwani as the boss.

County Secretary Peter Kariuki, County Secretary Peter Kariuki, Acting CEC health Vesca Kangogo, Chief Officer Health Mahat Mohammed, County Attorney Kwamboka, And the Gynaecologists as Pumwani Dr Kamau were all suspended for telling the truth and going against the Governor’s script which has now been discredited.

It’s not surprising that currently there’s a smear campaign on Dr. Catherine on social media even after investigations proving she wasn’t tainted. Our sources allege that the current hospital administrator at Pumwani Mr Geoffrey Mosiria who’s described as a crafty man, is behind the smear campaign against Dr. Catherine Mutindi.

What’s obvious after going through the facts that the office of the governor hasn’t refuted is that the suspended doctors were victims of rushed decisions and were after all innocent. Systemic failures as that of Pumwani can’t be resolved by emotions but in-depth look. This what I’ve been saying also about KNH where understaffing, under funding and over crowding is overlooked yet the biggest barriers to effective service delivery. Question now that remains is the fate of the other doctors suspended by Sonko if they’ll be reinstated as well since facts have proven them right and that Dr Catherine is back in service.

How Sameer Group Of Companies Was Defrauded Sh80M By Conmen Posing As President Uhuru In A Corrupt Deal

Published

on

Sameer Africa Group chairman Naushad Merali.

Conmen posing as President Uhuru Kenyatta have defrauded a Nairobi businessman of Sh80 million pretending that they would award him with state tenders.

Detectives from the DCI Special Crime Prevention Unit over the weekend arrested seven men believed to be part of the cartel that conned officials from Sameer Group of Companies.

So well organised are the criminals, that they have perfected the art of mimicking the President’s voice to near perfection.

Investigators say the conmen, operate as State House officials.

The caller, who imitates Uhuru and speaks in a voice almost similar to that of the President, tells businessmen of major government works which he asks them to take up.

The ‘fake President’, asks the victim to provide some money for logistical support.

He promises to send some State House officials and other staff from the Interior ministry to the victim’s office to collect the facilitation cash.

Men dressed in expensive suits then arrive in the office of the targeted businessman and introduce themselves as the staff of State House sent by the President to collect cash.

The ‘State House staff’ arrive in high-endvehicles and under police escort. They then collect the cash and disappear.

Highly placed sources familiar with the investigations said rogue police officers from Kilimani police station had been hired to provide security services to the State House imposters.

The con scheme came to light last month after officials from Sameer reportedly wrote to State House seeking an audience with the president over a tender deal.

Shocked State House officials after receiving the letter are said to have contacted the Sameer group official and inquired of the deal between themselves and the ‘fake President Uhuru’.

The matter was reported to the police and officers from the DCI headquarters opened investigations.

Police also impounded three high-endvehicles that include Toyota land cruisers and V8s which the conmen were using.

The arrested men have been identified asJoseph Waswa, Duncan Muchai, Isaac Wajekeche, William Simiyu, David Luganya,Gilbert Kirunja and Anthony Wafula.

The Police officer shot in the air forcing the thieves to surrender before he handcuffed them as members of the public watched with many urging him to shoot dead the suspects.

Mr. Ombati remained calm even as a furious mob urged him to shoot and kill.

He managed to recover Sh400,000 which was part of the Sh732,000 that the suspects had stolen from the complainant Mr Amos Charo.

Ombati would then be awarded by Interior CS Matiang’i for his bravery the government was given the heroic AP a Distinguished Service Award in November 2018 barely a month after his commendable work.

That wasn’t the end, Joash Ombati who single-handedly pursued two thugs in Nairobi and recovered KSh 400,000 has just been promoted to the rank of Corporal from being a AP Constable.

In a statement, Msalame says, “I take great exception for the fact that my image and likeliness are being used to propagate, disseminate and encourage objectification of women.

The media personality claims that her brand has been immensely hit following the publications of her images. “Miss Curvy Uganda’s deliberate and calculated use of my image and likeliness to promote violation of women’s bodies had defamed my character and reputation damaged a brand that I’ve worked for so many years to establish, and subjected me to unwarranted and undeserved cyber bullying.” She says in her statement.
