The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

Embu Gover­nor Martin Wamb­ora is in In­dia to seek part­ner­ship with the gov­ern­ment and doc­tors to help can­cer pa­tients in the county. County Ed­u­ca­tion ex­ec­u­tive Jam­leck Mu­turi said the gover­nor left on Satur­day. He said the aim of the part­ner­ship is to cush­ion pa­tients from travel to the for­eign coun­try for treat­ment. Mu­turi said the county gov­ern­ment has equipped the Embu Level 5 Hospi­tal with ma­chines to treat can­cer pa­tients. He said the costs of treat­ing pa­tients are ex­pected to fall sig­nif­i­cantly. “As a county gov­ern­ment, we have re­alised we have to com­ple­ment what the na­tional gov­ern­ment is do­ing. We are part­ner­ing with sev­eral hos­pi­tals in In­dia so that we can have can­cer pa­tients treated and op­er­ated on at the Embu Level 5 Hospi­tal,” Mu­turi said. He urged in­sur­ance com­pa­nies to come up with poli­cies that at­tract lit­tle pre­mium to en­able more Kenyans to reg­is­ter.
