Bupa Cromwel Hospital in London is arguably one of the best medical facility in the world. The hospital, where former First Lady Lucy Kibaki died, boasts of state of the art facilities and highly trained personnel.
Bupa Hospital is a far cry from the medical facilities we have in Kenya. The hospital looks like a five star hotel and that’s why it attracts a rich clientele like Kenya’s first lady.
Kenya blogger Robert Alai shared this on facebook:
What these corrupt leaders looting Kenya will discover is that no amount of loot will insulate them from death.
Our mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers are dying daily due to preventable diseases but since greed precede service, the deaths will never end.
From Hospitals in Kiambu, Isiolo, Isebania to Malaba, we can't get proper medical care because someone must steal. Our hospitals dampens the hopes of patients as our leaders seek treatment in foreign lands.
Even the 7-star Bupa Cromwell Hospital could not stop the death of Lucy Kibaki. Not even with the loot from the regime of her husband. She couldn't raid the news desk of death announcer to stop death.
I pray that our leaders remember to equip local hospitals because their greed is killing many more.
