According to the husband of the deceased, Letizia Achieng, his wife, was ready to give birth to their first child and decided to rush her to the Mbita Sub-County Hospital for delivery.
When they arrived at the hospital, the medics decided to refer the woman to Homa Bay County Referral Hospital since they lacked medicine to give the woman before delivery when her condition worsened.
When it was time to transfer her, the ambulance was not available. The husband to Letizia decided to hire a private car to take his wife to the hospital but the doctors refused and said that it the vehicle was not comfortable for the pregnant woman.
After 30 minutes, the ambulance arrived but the driver argued that the vehicle doesn't have fuel and wanted ksh 5,000 so as to start the engine. The husband and the driver spent 20 minutes arguing about he price and without reaching an agreement.
The husband to Letizia decided to use a private car to Homa Bay Referral Hospital only for his wife to die while receiving treatment at the hospital.
The senior doctor revealed that the drug missing at the Mbita Hospital only costs Ksh 240 and blames the hospital for taking long to transfer the patient.
The family is now pleading for justice form the government.
