"Tunataka Dawa..." HIV Positive Kenyans Dramatically Litter MoH Headquarters With Empty ARV Bottles

Kenyans living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) have dramatically left the entrance to the Ministry of Health headquarters with empty bottles of Antiretroviral drugs.

The have complained that the Kenyan government has not been supplying them with the drugs and this is the reason most of them are on the verge of getting adverse effects of not having sufficient drugs.

This comes at a time when the Head of State president Uhuru Kenyatta is said to have ordered the Mutahi Kagwe led ministry to ensure they solve their standoff with the USAID.

If the government does not manage to clear the mess, kenyans who have managed to suppress their viral load might end up suffering from opportunistic infections after their immunities get affected by lack of the life sustaining medicines.

Some of the Kenyans have however found themselves on the wrong side of the law with police officers having lobbed teargas on them to try and disperse them over intrusion of the Ministry's privacy.

From a video trending online, some of the Kenyans have been arrested and will now be arraigned in court to face charges related to the offence of intruding.
