Gusii Governance Watch have asked the administration of the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital to immediately launch investigation over a sudden death of a 14 month old baby as soon as possible.
The group has threatened to move to the streets to demonstrate if the hospital will not give a clear report as soon as possible until justice has been done.
Led by their Chairman Mr. Peter Angwenyi, they have said that the death of the child was due to negligence of the nurses and this is not the first case to be reported in the hospital.

“This issue of negligence at work should be dealt with, we don’t want workers who sleep on their job. It was a small problem that the hospital was to handle. In 2016 the same issue arose in the hospital. The staff should be audited to know their competence,” said Angwenyi.
His sentiments were echoed by his secretary Vincent Gekone who said that the hospital has been handling patients unprofessionally.
He noted that this is not the first case, in 2016 a woman died while undergoing CS.
“We really want to know what transpired the death of this innocent child,” said Gekone.
He said the hospital lacks facilities due to high theft from medics who own private clinics .
They want the hospital to give a detailed report on who were on duty when the incident occurred, the percentage of medicine administered to the baby and how long it took in theater room without attending the baby.
“We are taking up this matter as an organization and move to court to demand justice for this family,” he noted.
Baby Jennifer Kemunto died while undergoing treatment at Kisii level six whereby she was given an injection before undergoing a surgery which was never done. Efforts to get the comment from the hospital went in vain.
