He was among the 50 medics sent to Cuba for further studies at the University of Medical Sciences in Havana. The program was going to cost the Kenyan government Sh215 million.
The medics were going to receive a month stipend of Sh36,000 during their stay in Cuba but the government has been inconsistent in the payments.
It has been said that the doctors have been struggling due to the high cost of living in the foreign country. For example, a cup of tea goes for at least Sh600 while a Sh30 exercise book goes for Sh800.
Here are messages of condolence:
Sincere Condolences Mweshimiwa and the entire family,my Allah grant you peace and strength during this hard time Amin.
