Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has on Monday come to the rescue of a baby held over an outstanding bill of Ksh 56k.
Governor Mike Sonko through his team secured the release of a mother and her baby held at Kenyatta National Hospital.
The woman and the baby were held over an outstanding bill of Ksh 56k that prompted the father to sneak the baby out of the hospital.
Unfortunately Boniface Murage was caught by the guards in charge leading to his arrest.
Appearing at Milimani Law Courts, Mr. Boniface pleaded guilty of his crime admitting that he had no money to settle the bill.
The story that went viral on Monday caught the attention of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko who sent his team to the hospital.
They managed to settle the bill and did some shopping for both the mother and the baby.
