Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua comes to the rescue of the ailing Mukami Kimathi who has been held hostage at a Nairobi based Hospital for failing to offset the hospital bill.

Mukami Kimathi was rushed to a Nairobi based hospital on January 5th with pneumonia symptoms, she was admitted and released after a week on January 12th.

The hospital has however, not allowed her to leave its premises for failing to offset a Ksh 1 million hospital bill that accrued for the seven days she was admitted.

Her family had accused political players of deceit even after being told to lias with Embakasi Central Member of Parliament Benjamin Gathiru alias Major Donk.

Before the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua promised to offset the Ksh 1 million bill, Kenyans had gone to social media asking for mechanism to channel their contributions so that Mukami Kimathi can be released from the Hospital.

Philanthropist and Gospel Musician Karangu Muraya begged the government to intervene and help the elderly woman on his facebook page. Karangu had attached a clip of Mukami Kimathi while in hospital. Kenyans of goodwill asked him to give them a paybill where they can channel their contributions so that she can be released from the hospital.

Kikuyu Council of Elders, Wachira wa Kiago, also claimed that remnants of the Mau Mau movement might attract a curse for failing to help Mukami Kimathi. He urged Kenyans to join hands and fundraise so that she can be released from the hospital.

On Monday morning, Rigathi Gachagua acknowledged that the matter of Mukami Kimathi had been brought to his attention by Embakasi Central MP while he was in Nyanza for a development tour.

The deputy president also assured Kenyans that he will be looking in to the matter once he gets back to Nairobi but for the meantime he tasked the Embakasi Central Mp with looking for urgent intervention.

“In this regard, I have tasked Embakasi Central MP Hon. Benjamin Gathiru a.k.a Major Donk to look into her situation urgently. On my return to Nairobi later today, I will make time to visit our mother to check on her progress and assess possible interventions to make her life more comfortable,” Rigathi Gachagua said.
