Rutto’s trip to SA ex­poses fail­ures in county health­care

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

Bomet county Gov­er­nor Isaac Rutto re­turned from South Africa where he was be­ing treated af­ter a can­is­ter hit him on the face. In as much as it is up to him to de­cide where he wants to be treated, it is weird that one would seek med­i­cal at­ten­tion for such a small in­jury out­side the coun­try. As a gov­er­nor and with the health func­tion de­volved, Rutto didn’t need to be air­lifted to Nairobi, leave alone go to South Africa. He should have a well-equipped hos­pi­tal in his county. This event should be an in­di­ca­tor of how gover­nors have failed.
