The accident left a 10-year-old with head injuries and the family had to look for a medical alternative with immediate effect.

“We did not get even placement at Kiambu District Hospital. We were told to look for a private hospital so that our child can be treated,” said Ng’ang’a’s mother.

“We were told by the Gatundu Hospital to wait for them to look for a government hospital,” Ng’ang’a’s mother added.

The family was then referred to Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) after visiting Gatundu Level 5 hospital as reported by TV 47, Kenya.
