Following an investigation by Nation media platform at Vihiga County Referral Hospital on a case where patients are forced to pay bribes before being attended to, a update has been shared by the management.
According to information published by County Secretary and Head of Public Service Mr Ezekiel Ayiego, the clinical Officer behind the bribery acts has been identified as Clinton Motara.
The 28-year old clinical Officer is neither a staff member at the VCRH nor the County Government of Vihiga. However, he has been accessing the facility and attending to patients without permission and knowledge of the management.
CCTV footage at the facility captured him impersonating staff and extorting money from unsuspecting patients. He was arrested and arraigned at the Vihiga Law Courts.

It is so unfortunate that a person can access a hospital, extort patients and attend to them without knowledge of the hospital's management.
