A 69 year old woman in Kayole is appealing to Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to help her settle a hospital bill that has seen her son’s dead body held in a mortuary for close to one year.
Beatrice Osano says her 49 year old son’s body has been lying at the Nairobi Women’s Hospital Mortuary since March this after he died leaving a hospital bill of over three million shillings.
According to Osano her son’s wife disappeared with three Million shillings raised at a fundraiser in a bid to settle the hospital bill.
“My son’s wife is currently residing in Congo, just immediately after his death, she formed a fundraising committee. The committee raised about Ksh 3 Million. Unfortunately she, without any explanations, disbanded the committee and fled with the money,” she said.
The deceased had one son with the estranged wife, who is also out of the country.
Osano says her situation is at its worst because she has 5 children depending on her at the moment and she cannot still be able to cater for them as she sick making her stay in bed.
