There is no cause of an alarm following the bodies discovered yesterday at Pumwani Maternity Hospital.
This according to the acting county executive for health Nairobi city county Veska Kangogo.
Kangogo said the bodies can be accounted for as bodies in the faccility are not collected on a daily basis but instead on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Addressing the media at Pumwani hospital today Kangogo said the facility does not have a morgue and instead uses a room with required temperatures to preserve the bodies before being taken away.
Many questions have have been raised over the governors’ expose’ at the facillity yesterday.
‘‘We can account for all 12 bodies discovered at Pumwani yesterday and its also true that we do not have a morgue at the facility but a room where we hold bodies before they are taken away,’’ She stated.
The Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Union also defended doctors implicated in the whole saga terming governor Sonkos’ actions as theatricks to gain political millage.
KMPDU secretary general Dr. Ouma Oluga and her Nairobi branch counter part Thuranira Kaugiria, asked the public not to politicise the matter but to address the issues soberly.
The two criticised the manner in which doctors were suspended without tangible facts to the cause of the infants death at the facility.
