MP Visits Woman who Was Left to Die After a Matatu Run Over her

A few days ago, Kenyans were touched by a story of Winnie, a lady from Thika who was hit by a Matatu and even ran over her. The Matatu drove off to avoid arrest thinking that the woman had died. Those who were present at the scene said that they were also convinced that Winnie had lost her life due to the physical destructions that were visible on her body.

The Thika business lady was saved by good Samaritans who were passing by. At first they called the police to come and collect the body and take it to the morgue only for one person to see the lady blink her eye. They changed their mind and decided to take her to hospital where she was discovered that her heart was still beating and she was put under intensive care in the casualty ward.

Thika town member of parliament, Patrick Wainaina, was touched by this story and he yesterday visited the family through his foundation, The Jungle Foundation. The legislator went there to lender his help and as well see how the lady was recovering after this heinous act.

Patrick Wainaina Wajungle.

"I spared some time to visit Ms. Winnie, the lady who was run over by a matatu in Thika Town and left for the dead. Luckily she was saved and hospitalized by good samaritans. Today she is paralyzed from waist down. She has been receiving physio therapy sessions funded by Jungle Foundation which has seen her improve greatly, thanks to God Almighty. We look forward to see her go out and fend for her daughter Liz soonest!" Posted the MP on his Facebook page.

Many have come out to thank the legislator for his act of mercy. Wainaina is among the few leaders who have always maintained a close touch with the society.
