President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday evening launched several hospitals in Nairobi's informal settlements. The new health centers are a blessing to poor Kenyans who had all along been relying on only Kenyatta National Hospital and Mama Lucy Hospital.
President Uhuru Kenyatta who was accompanied by NMS Director General Mohammed Badi and several senior Government officials, directed public hospitals in Nairobi to offer 24-hour services to ensure city residents access health services whenever they need them.
The Magufuli-style night visits were also to keep the administration and medic teams on toes since the hospitals should serve Kenyans for 24 hours.
The hospitals launched by the Head of State in the four-hour night operation were two level 2 hospitals at Gichagi in Kangemi and Gatina in Kawangware as well as level 3 hospitals in Mukuru Kwa Rueben, Tassia Kwa Ndege and Our Lady of Nazareth in Mukuru Kwa Njenga.
Kenyans sincerely hope that some activist judge somewhere will not declare the hospitals to be unconstitutional because they were launched at night, and without public participation .
Such dedication to bringing services closer to the people (hustlers) is unprecedented.
