Other Kenya’s though impressed felt there was more than the governor could have done and the things he should do as the governor of the capital, here are some sane comments.
Good gesture but as a leader, you need to ask yourself why the baby could not be treated at a Kenyan facility. Mr Governor, our hospitals can be better if we were genuine with the transformation. Critical care equipments and drugs not available

Prayers for bby HW. If only we could invest in our own healthcare & stop sending our people to foreign countries for treatment, we would’ve more happy families spending time alongside their loved ones, creating jobs 4 our pple, growing the econ & circulating $$ amongst ourselves.
