Former Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko took the online world with praise after his critically ill employee got discharged from the reknown Ruai Family Hospital.
Currently, the country is facing a new wave of COVID 19. Majority in the world happen to suffer the wrath of the Delta Variant with families struggling to get hospitalization into facilities with constant oxygen supply and premium competent care.
The cost of healthcare has significantly gone higher. Subsequently, COVID-19 patients get overwhelming bills which has extensively impacted on families forcing them to either sell the long acquired assets or engage in community borrowing and fundraisers to clear the bills.
Former Nairobi Governor, Mike Mbuvi Sonko’s worker got admitted in Ruai Family Hospital and spent over 7 days. Whereas the flamboyant former governor had committed to settle the bill on admission, they got shocked over the favourably and friendly cumulative bill after a long battle with COVID in the wards.
This made Sonko set his foot online with thanks giving and appreciation to the hospital which is very rare in most hospital cases upon discharge.
“The devil is a liar. This is our staff Francis Wambua aliyekuwa na COVID 19 and was in a very critical condition karibu atuache lakini MUNGU ni nani! Francis was just discharged from Ruai Family Hospital”. He said while making his exit from the Ruai facility.
Sonko then made his appeal to the masses to consider massive vaccination as it would be the only saviour from the current COVID menace in the country. “Watu wangu jichungeni sana. Muvaccinatiwe, muvae mask na muobserve all the MOH corona protocals”(My people, take care. Be vaccinated, put on face masks and observe all Covid-19 protocols issued by the ministry of health), he said.
This is after a long appeal from all the local leaders mobilizing for a massive vaccination.
Recently, the institution has received praises for its management of covid- 19 patients with positive outcomes opening it’s doors for more referral preferences by majority of the health service provider in Nairobi.
