Awiti urged the national government to speed up the installation of the Intensive Care Unit to save lives. He was quoted by a local daily as saying:
“The ICU was earmarked for installation in the second phase of the project but we request that we get it urgently because of our heavy health burden,”
“The Homa Bay County Hospital had been neglected for long, yet it serves people from Homa Bay, Migori and parts of Kisii,” he said.
“It is sad that while smaller hospitals in other counties have been upgraded to level five facilities and allocated funds, Homa Bay hospital has remained a level four facility.”
