Nairobi - The Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) is appealing for blood donation to facilitate surgeries for the victims of the blasts that ripped two buses along Thika Road on Sunday.
The hospital received 33 patients following the blasts.
“13 have been treated and discharged, 17 have been admitted and two are undergoing review. One patient is critical. Many patients sustained soft tissue injuries and fractures of the limbs it is regrettable that one patient succumbed to the injuries,” a statement from the hospital said.
Those admitted include four children, among them a child aged about 7 year Ray Hananda , who was unaccompanied by the time of the incident and the hospital has not been able to trace his parent or guardian.
“Master Ray claims that his parents are Eunice and Peter Hananada and he is a pupil at Brigde Academy. Anyone with information that would help reunite the boy with his relatives can contact KHN through Facebook or 2726300-9 or Toll Free 1521 (EXT 43121),” the statement added.
