Kerugoya County Referral Hospital in Kirinyaga County is the talk of town hours after an exposé by a local media.

In the exposé aired on Citizen TV on Saturday night, the county leadership led by Governor Ann Waiguru has largely been blamed over the sickening state of the facility.

Blocked toilets, unwashed linen, rotting garbage and undisposed hospital garbage paints the picture of the deplorable condition at the county’s referral health facility.

Reports indicate the hospital recently laid off 200 casual workers responsible for ensuring hygiene in the hospital.

The county reportedly took the move without much deliberations on consequences to its patients and staff.

Water crisis is another big problem both the staff and patients are experiencing. The situation has put these groups at risk of contaminating diseases.

Kenya Union of Clinical Officers’ Kirinyaga county chairperson Paul Mwangi confirmed cases of Hepatitis B reported with some health workers testing positive.

“There are several nurses who are experiencing diarrhea. Last week, two nurses were diagnosed with Hepatitis B,” he stated.

He expressed fears of cholera outbreak if proper measures are not put in place going forward.

The revelations have angered Kenyans who took to social media to call on the county leadership to take responsibility of the menace at the hospital.
