With the KCPE exams just around the corner, 15 year old Floys Opisa a candidate at Mission of Hope primary School-Kiamaiko in Huruma is uncertain whether she will sit for her exams.
Opisa who has been ailing since the August Holiday has been in and out of several hospitals before finally being admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital.
“I first took her to a local clinic in Huruma where they diagnosed her with asthma, the doctors there tried to treat her to no avail, she was then referred to the MSF clinic in Mathare,” narrated Opisa’s father Julius Omukote.
“At MSF, he was asked to take her to a hospital in Kiambu, the doctors at the hospital in Kiambu also failed to diagnose the illness and referred them to Kenyatta National Hospital,” Omukote further narrates.
It is at KNH where she was diagnosed with a heart problem and had to be admitted.
Doctors say that Opisa had an artery blockage which had made the minor’s heart enlarge abnormally.
” She stayed at KNH for 11 days after successfully undergoing treatment but cannot be discharged for lack of Ksh. 31,000,” he says.
Omukote who is a handcart pusher now fears that her daughter might fail to sit for her national exams that are starting on Tuesday after the Monday rehearsals.
He is now calling on well wishers to come to his aid so that his daughter can sit her upcoming KCPE exams.
Well wishers can send their donations to Ghetto Radio’s Pay Bill Number 856400.
