Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko is an angry man after finding 12 infant corpses on Monday, during an impromptu visit at Pumwani Hospital.
In a video he has shared online, we see boxes stacked with management denying knowledge of the same.
The bodies were wrapped together in polythene bags and stuffed in three boxes inside a store.
One box contained one body, another six and another five. The Governor streamed the raid live on his Facebook account.
Sonko visited the facility on a boda boda, catching the management off guard.
He said the visit was prompted by a video he had received showing some members of the administration ferrying bodies from the wards.
He wrote about his visit strongly emphasizing on the need for respect towards the dead.
“Conducting impromptu visit at Pumwani Hospital, where it’s alleged by members of the public that the management shut down the machines at the Maternity Wing, leading to loss of lives of young ones. I want to categorically state that human life must be respected no matter the case. Stern action will be taken against anyone found to be sabotaging the good services offered to our mothers and sisters who come to deliver in this facility.”
