Defending X Ray section


Kisumu County Government has come out strongly to defend services at X Ray section at Kisumu County Hospital.

The county health chief officer Dr Joseph Okweso says services at the X Ray section have been above board.

Okweso spoke after a woman captured on video that went viral claiming that services at the X Ray section are wanting.

He says the woman came and ejected a patient from the queue to the X Ray section sparking outbursts from her in a video.

He dismissed the woman who later took the patient to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral hospital as a body seeker.

Speaking to the press in Kisumu, Okweso says good services at the section have been hailed by many patients.

He says in every sector when the numbers of people are many then they have to be in a line for efficient services.

Okweso says it was wrong for the woman to take away the patient while she was lining up for the services.

He says such outbursts are just meant to discredit the good work being done by Governor Anyang Nyong’o in the health sector.

Okweso appealed to the public who are getting difficulties in accessing health services to report to his office instead of making unsubstantiated claims
