After spending the better part of the day at the Nakuru law courts seeking an affidavit to have his postmortem done, Dr James Gakara family were frustrated after the exercise was halted due to legal technicalities that required the family to file a next of kin affidavit. This happened after it dawned on authorities that the doctor, who died at the hospital on Wednesday morning, had been booked in at the facility by the police as an unknown male adult at the time of admission.[Photo courtesy: Dr James Gakara's family: Wife Winnie and children Karuana and Dylan]

After turning up at Nakuru Level 5 hospital on Thursday morning, the family was sent away after government pathologist Titus Ngulungu requested for the official documents to enable him to carry out the postmortem. Although the family wanted to transfer the body to  PNN Mortuary they were stopped as the law stipulated that the postmortem had to be done at the hospital first.[Photo courtesy]

Nakuru West DCIO Stephen Ambani defended his officers after booking the doctor as unknown saying that his officers were more concerned about having the doctor start treatment immediately to save his life. By the time the officers were getting his details from his relatives and documents, Dr Gakara had already been booked and doctors were attending to him. The DCIO promised the family that his details will be amended through the right procedure but after getting the affidavit the pathologist had already left and this required a reschedule for a later date.[Photo courtesy]
