CORRUPTION EXAMPLE

According to the Star Media, A key government official says she made a killing during the Covid-19 pandemic through dubious deals.

The same trend is believed to be in County Governments. Governors procure and install ICU beds with spare oxygen cylinders at their private homes. This is just incase the hospitals get overwhelmed their family are safe.

TESTIMONIALS


" Mbagathi hospital officials are lying about tests being available. I fell sick yesterday, presenting symptoms and had to get a test. Went to Mbagathi, they don’t do tests. You pay at Mbagathi then you go to Lady North Hospital to get the test done" Ms Mitchie Tuva.



" However, On top of that, they’ve halted the tests at Lady North due to lack of capacity. Called Kemri and Lancet, the same thing. They have an incredible backlog and had halted tests. What next? Went to Avenue hospital to receive care, the test cost Ksh 13,000 and was the only place, " Bashiri said.


" I could get the test done at the time. Insurance clearly stated they’re not covering COVID-19 tests. 13,000 out of pocket.. how do they expect people to afford that? And the process before they put you in isolation? Ghai. They’re overwhelmed, " he added.


However, Ms Mitchie Tuva urged the public to wear a facemask if you do not have less than Sh 10,000 per person just for testing.


" I had a lot of time that I spent in the waiting room before they put me in isolation to run tests and be away from people. It’s already HECTIC at 10,000 cases and we’re still rising. Anyway, turns out its just pneumonia and I’ll be okay. Please stay safe, WEAR YOUR MASKS, " she added.




" I went to Agakhan and they charge 13100. At least they put you in a tent outside to wait for the test. Luckily it was just paranoia and was negative but people around me were coughing and It was just, " Shantel said.
