Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Monday issued an executive order waiving all pending bills for patients who have stayed over one month at Mbagathi District Hospital.

Sonko said all patients, whose bills have been waived, should be discharged with immediate effect.

This comes a day after Sonko paid an impromptu visit to Mbagathi District Hospital.

“I have ordered with immediate effect a waiver and discharge of all patients who have stayed in the hospital more than one month,” said Sonko.

The Governor issued a list of some eight names who said are among those that had stayed at the hospital for over one month after they were unable to pay their bills.

In the Executive Order, Sonko directed County Health Chief Officer Mahat Jimale Mohammed to make sure that the eight patients are released immediately.

Those whose bills were waived include; Virginia Mumbi, Carolyne Mwende, Mary Achieng’, John Ngashai, Cosmas Kioko, Susan Wanjiku, Jane Wavinya and Margaret Oloo.

Sonko said the health County Chief Officer Mahat Jimale should liaise with Mbagathi District Hospital Medical Superintendent Joseph Karani to ensure the order is executed.

Elderly shivering Suzan Wanjiku thanked Governor Sonko and said that he is a God given who should be put in prayers all the time.

“H.E you are a God given. When a friend of mine came and whispered to my ears that you were around i knew something unexpected was to happen.My God guide you all through.”she said
