EMBAKASI HOSPITAL RENOVATION
Nairobi county government is now on the run to fix Embakasi Hospital mess after Ghetto Radio News exposed the deplorable state of the facility that also triggered public uproar.
Heavy rains that pounded the city last week made massive destruction to some of the hospital files and equipment.
Photos and videos obtained by Ghetto Radio showed a dilapidated ceiling and destroyed files of the health center that is supposed to offer free 24 hour maternity services.
Health Chief Officer Dr. Washington Makodinga says they have pumped shillings 1.2 million to renovate the facility.The funds have been sourced from the emergency funds.
‘‘The cost of renovation is quite significant because we need to renovate the roof,we will start with the roofing and fix the tiles though original construction of this roof did not meet the standard.’’ He noted.
Makodingo further warned head of all county hospitals to be vigilant and to relay information on their facility status regularly failure to which they face severe disciplinary consequences .
‘‘We are now moving to other hospitals , if you have an issue please tell me directly my office is open ,we will facilitate but if you fail to report to us on time then we will treat yous as part of the problem.’’ Makodingo stated.
