Kindiki faults CoG over medical equipment

09 February 2015, 10:28 Robert Chepkwony

Nakuru - Senate Majority Leader, Kithure Kindiki, has faulted the Council of Governors’ decision to reject the central government’s plan to equip hospitals in the 47 counties at a cost of KES 38 billion.

CoG through its chairman, Isaac Ruto is said to have incited the governors to skip the launch, terming it a scheme to wrestle the devolved health sector.

Speaking on Sunday at the Nakuru Suburb PCEA church when he graced a fundraiser, Kindiki who is also the Tharaka Nithi Senator faulted the move accusing the governors of not taking into account the serious health issues affecting the locals.

“Having realized that many Kenyans have lost their belongings that they sold to foot hospital bills for diseases such as kidney disease,” he said.

“This is why the government through President Uhuru Kenyatta decided to set aside two hospitals to be equipped with special equipment such as dialysis machines for kidney failure, MRI equipment among others,” he added, wondering why the governors were opposing the move.

“Those who are opposing the plan want to benefit themselves. They can afford to seek medical attention abroad unlike the ordinary Kenyans,” said Kindiki, adding the leaders' pride was ruining development.

Five multinational companies are facilitating the supply of various equipment.

His sentiments were echoed by Manyatta MP John Muchiri, Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri and his Nakuru Town West counterpart Samuel Arama.
