Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua today visited the Nairobi Hospital to check on the health of Mukami Kimathi, the widow of Kenya's legendary freedom fighter Field Marshal Dedan Kimathi.
During the visit, DP Righathi presented President William Ruto's bold move to clear a hospital bill owed by Mrs. Kimathi.
Mrs. Kimathi is said to have been detained at the hospital over an alleged Ksh1 million bill. Reports indicate that she had been admitted at the hospital for a few days but was unable to settle the bill.
The Deputy President said that the government had been informed of Mrs. Kimathi's plight and had taken steps to settle the bill. He said that the government was committed to taking care of the elderly and promised to ensure that Mrs. Kimathi gets the best possible medical treatment.
Mrs. Kimathi thanked Deputy President Gachagua and his delegation for their assistance. She said that she was grateful for the support she had received from the government and urged them to continue helping the less fortunate in society.
"H.E President @WilliamsRuto has cleared the Hospital Bill; Thank you, President William Ruto, for coming through for Mukami Kimathi and her family. You are a true and genuine friend of our people. Be blessed abundantly. Always," DP Rigathi said.
