    This is an expose’ of governments’ neglect of its citizen health!  The new constitution provides for health as a right to all Kenyans, it is appalling that even with a donation of Kes 40 Million, the construction of the ward is yet to be completed at the expense of the lives of innocent patients.
    Could we get an explanation from the government, specifically the ministry of public health and sanitation on how the money was spent, is this another case of misappropriation by the government?
    What a shame!  Thank you Capital FM for such a good exposure, kindly inform us what the government is doing about this as you have not addressed the governments’ take on this.

      Onchiri, KELIN in partnership with other organizations is following on this matter and we definitely will be formally asking the ministries the same questions.

    A serious Journalist needs to go to KNH and get a photo of the so called renovated but incomplete MDR-TB isolation ward that I heard has consumed over 65 Million Kenya Shillings! You’ll never believe your eyes….a real “jicho pevu kind of a making”   Media Guys try to go there and see if they will allow you to take a photo! The stuff have become some people in the ministry “Cash cow”!. If you’re daring enough and care about the citizens health…go and see the ward……

    The government of Kenya is just a weird one, it has money to construct such a huge house for the vice President, to pay for PEV suspects, the likes of shuttle diplomacy, money is always there as long as it is about them! but now imagine TB patients walking around because Kenya cannot complete a ward even after getting 40 million shillings donation! I think we should walk to the streets and fight for this!!!!! this is serious,

    so many Kenyans continue to die just like flies no one cares, but when big people die, they want us to make us feel it, so selfish Kenyans! we drive in the buses, in matatus and we can only afford to go to Kenyatta, surely, isn’t this a big risk to our lives, we love Kenya but we hate this government

    Only God protects us coz he knows our government doesn’t care. they have money to go to London, and South Africa for treatment,  even those with TB, God will heal you

    Its quite a shaming that we have a government whose priority is misplaced and they use the funds gotten for purposes that is not intended. As a Kenyan I have a right to health and I would not want to contract TB just because someone somewhere did not deliver in his responsibility and make sure that a ward is built. So over to the concerned minister what are you doing???????????????

     As a country where nearly 7,000 people die of TB every year, it’s shocking that the government isn’t being more proactive about the situation. This article should serve as a call to action. It’s time to eliminate TB as a public health threat once and for all.

    Thank you for running this story! It’s an important one. What is the government going to do now in order to make sure the ward is completed and opens as soon as possible?

    This looks like a classic case of “pay now or pay later”. Except if you pay later, you pay not just with money but with misery and death. A dedicated TB ward, properly built and ventilated, is a small investment for the future savings it would make in ensuring not so many people are infected by this terrible disease and those whoa re sick have the best chance of recovery.

    Getting a dedicated budget line for TB control that would include this investment would be a fabulous commitment from a government to show it cares for its citizens!

    Multi-drug resistant TB is a hugely important issue.  And not only for Kenya.  TB is an air-borne disease, and just a plane ride away from the rest of the world.  TB anywehere is really TB everywhere. 

    This ward should be completed as soon as possible.
