Suspended Pumwani bosses fight back


Suspended Pumwani Maternity Medical Superintendent Cathrene Mutinda and  chief administrator Zadock Angalya have denied any wrong doing terming the suspension by governor  Mike Sonko  baseless.

According to Dr.  Mutinda  Governor Sonko ought to have investigated and understood how the babies  died and  cause of the deaths  before making a blanket allegations that it was deliberate and  out of negligence.

A report seen by Ghetto Radio News shows that  out of 11 dead  babies discovered by Sonko one died on 12th September, three died on 13th all still birth another 3 died on 16th  and the remaining on 17th the day Sonko stormed the hospital.

Mutinda says  Pumwani is a refferal hospital and and that maternal death rate of between 3-5 babies daily is understandable.

‘‘He did not give us time to elaborate on the deaths and four deaths in referral hospital is normal and there should be no panic on the same,’’ she added.

In her revelations  she also noted that Pumwani has no ambulance , a morgue and that the National Health Insurance Fund NHIF owes the  facility  Ksh. 50 million, Linda Mama program included.

Other shocking revelations also indicate that Pumwani has leaking roofs and only one laundry machine that is 40 years old.

They have now asked governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko to reinstate them back to their duties and that he should not be driven by rumours and  by cartels who want to do business with Pumwani.

‘‘Dr. Baraza is one of those who does not want us in Pumwani,  I sent him back to the county government because of his uncontrollable absenteeism in this hospital and he has been working hard with cartels to ensure no system run smoothly in Pumwani.’’ She added.

During  governor Kidero’s administration the facility used to receive half a million daily for its operations from the county government something that is not  happening with current government.
