Revealed: The Amount Of Money That Government Paid To Clear Hospital Bill Incurred By Kimath's Wife

The Kenyan government today cleared Sh1.3 million hospital bill incurred by Mukami Kimathi, widow of freedom fighter Dedan Kimathi.

Ms Kimathi who was admitted to Nairobi Hospital on January 5, 2023, suffering from pneumonia and age-related complications had been discharged but was detained due to the bill.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, who was accompanied by some MPs from Mt Kenya, visited the freedom fighter's widow in the hospital where he said her detention was a shame and humiliation to a national heroine.

“We have cleared the bill and wish her complete recovery. We were not aware of her predicament as me and the president have been on a western Kenya tour and this was only brought to our attention yesterday,” Gachagua said at the hospital.

The DP revealed that the Kimathi family had requested help to recover his remains to accord him a decent burial.
