Pumwani hospital on the spot as woman delivers at the gate

Pumwani Maternity Hospital is on the spot after a video circulating on social media shows a woman delivering outside the gate.

The video has since angered Kenyans taking their frustration on Nairobi County leadership for their laxity in service delivery.

Members of the public who were at the scene could be heard pleading to the hospital to attend to the woman who is alleged to have been turned away from the facility.

Nairobi Women Rep. Esther Passaris has since confirmed the incident happened a week ago upon inquiry from the hospital.

“Pumwani Hospital informs me that the incident took place a week ago, and that nurses eventually attended to mother and baby who are currently doing fine. It’s imperative that gaps in our healthcare systems are sealed, starting with grievances that lead to go-slows.” Said Passaris.

She continues by saying she is trying to reach out to the family to know their well-being in addition to raising the issue with Senators mandated with health services.

“My office is actively tracking down the family to ensure their well being. Meanwhile, I call on my fellow leaders, particularly Senators who are mandated to oversight devolved health services to address this matter with urgency. Pumwani’s gates should not have been closed.” Said Passaris.

Kenyans took to social media to question Passaris over her statement in reference to the timing of the incident.
