    Prof. You dont have to fight every time. Sometimes you just let go. All the same I still think you failed miserably where it really counts seeing that having been health minister for close to a decade you still have to make trips abroad for treatment. Perharps it is now time to spend more time reflecting and making peace with your God. Ever read Hebrews 9:27 (in the Bible)? John 3 also makes very informative reading for the life ahead.

      Hebrews 9:27 – ”And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” Honestly, this professor is just a nuisance. He should not bother with God’s duties. He should wait for the actual judgement day

    Wish everyone can afford to leave the country for check up. And at the same time, abuse the local nurses and doctors. I am sure a lot of people wont be saddened by your demise

    Annual medical check up in the US?? This Nyongo guy would have no business making Kenya Healthcare better; he does not need Kenya healthcare. The irony is that the taxpayers who do not have healthcare paid for his check up abroad or at least he paid for it from what he stashed from the ministry he headed for almost a decade. Shame on you good for nothing Prof.

    After being at the helm of health matters in our country for many years, you should at least point out something you began which you would wish to see completed under the Jubilee leadership. Something tangible and not one of the many statements you have spewed here that are full, too full, of yourself Professor.

    Where is Nyong’o? haven’t seen him in ages

    He probably should do his annual check ups in Kenya.

    It’s such a shame for my Kenyans to be so full of hate as to even wish for another man’s death ( especially in one particular comment). The man is speaking the truth, and you know it! Maybe he is not your typical intellectual. I think people have become used to the sonkos, waititus, shebesh, etc of this world. Or even so, unless the writer is from your tribe or from a similar political dispensation, whatever he or she talks about is hogwash.No matter the content of his piece. There is no need of hating on a fellow man. He goes to the US for his medical checkup because the United States is way ahead on the treatment and research of cancers( he has suffered prostate cancer, as you may be aware). Beth Mugo spent a chunk of her time getting treatment in the US but she didn’t get any grief. I guess when people hate on him that much, he must have done certain things right.
