Despite several visits by key political leaders ranging from Deputy President William Ruto to Raila Odinga, details of Kuria's admission to the hospital were never made public, safe for the little information that he had undergone a leg surgery.
And on Thursday, The Star newspaper let the cat out of the bag, reporting that Kuria is recuperating after suffering from Electric Blanket Burns. It is the same burns that subjected the vocal legislator to two successive to probably correct the conditions of his burnt legs.
It is reported that Kuria got into the problem while warming himself up with the electric blanket. The effects of the burns are usually not felt immediately and it is reported that Kuria started realizing the problem after some time.
The effects arising from electric blanket burns could a time force patients to undergo leg amputation if not skin grafts, though Kuria's situation was not revealed to the public.
The question, however, lingering on the minds of most Kenyans is how the Electric Blanket works and its cost in Kenyan shillings.
Well according to research conducted by this publication, electric blankets use an insulated wire or heating element inserted into a fabric that heats when it is plugged into a socket. One has the capability of adjusting the temperatures to the levels one wishes.
The temperature control unit, located between the blanket and the electrical outlet, manages the amount of current entering into the heat elements in the blanket.
The cost of electric blankets in Kenyan markets ranges from Ksh4,000 to as high as Ksh20,000 depending on the quality and features of the blanket.
