Kenya National Union of Nurses has defended governor Mike Sonko’s recent actions at Pumwani Hospital saying, people should be addressing the real issues not how the governor handled the matter and his style of leadership .
Addressing the media the union secretary Seth Panyako asked those opposing the governors’ move to stop diverting attention of the public from the mess at the facility.
‘‘When the governor came here he saw the problems himself why do you address his style of leadership while we have a mess at Pumwani and mothers and infants are dying?’’ Panyako lamented.
According to Panyako a special medical audit should be done at the hospital and stern disciplinary action to be taken on those found culpable for the deaths of the eleven infants.
He further faulted the Pumwani top management for negligence questioning how Pumwani has been losing children through uterine rupture.
‘‘We want a special medical audit done by professionals but not political institutions like senators and MCAs.’’ He stated.
Panyako wants quick measures to be taken by the county government and the national government including harmonization to fix the mess.
The union also blamed former Nairobi governor Kideros’ administration for not implementing their recommendations after alleged baby theft at the facility in 2015.
