Worst, best of Kenya: NYS scam, KNH feat

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The KNH team of sur­geons and health work­ers that sep­a­rated con­joined twins Bless­ing and Favour, in the first such op­er­a­tion in Africa where ba­bies were joined in the lower spine, is to be highly com­mended.

Coin­ci­den­tally, the 23-hour op­er­a­tion in­volv­ing some 60 Health pro­fes­sion­als over­lapped in real-time with some of the PAC hear­ings into the Sh1.6 bil­lion scan­dal at the NYS. Some of the very worst of Kenya was hap­pen­ing along­side some of the very best of Kenya, Africa and the world.

The sur­gi­cal feat showed that a great pool of tal­ent, skill and pre­ci­sion ex­ists in Kenya and is part of a great hu­man re­source po­ten­tial. The NYS hear­ings ex­posed ma­raud­ing packs of thiev­ing bu­reau­crats.

Kenya can per­form won­ders if no funds ear­marked for Afya – or indeed any other pub­lic ser­vice – were lost to em­bez­zle­ment.

This phe­nom­e­nal op­er­a­tion speaks about a Kenya that yearns to be cor­rup­tion-free.

May Bless­ing and Favour live to see graft in Kenya made a thing of a long-ago past.
