Kenyan woman dies after breast enlargement surgery, clinic under probe

Published

on

A Kenyan woman who  had an operation to enlarge her breasts and later developed complications has died. June Wanza sought medical attention at Nairobi Hospital on Wednesday and died on Thursday.

The Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board (KMPD) has named the clinic where the woman had a breast enlargement operation that later resulted in her death.

The boards chief executive Daniel Yumbya identified Surgeoderm Healthcare in Nairobi as the clinic where Ms June Wanza had a cosmetic operation that turned fatal last week.

Mr Yumbya said the board had written to the clinic’s management asking for an explanation into the events leading up to her eventual hospitalisation and death at the Nairobi Hospital.

The clinic, situated along Theta Lane in Nairobi’s Kilimani area, has slick online advertisements detailing a range of cosmetic procedures offered including breast enlargement and reduction, leg shaping or augmentation, hair loss treatments and plastic or reconstructive surgery.

REPORT

They have also requested for a report from the Nairobi Hospital.

“After we receive the report from Nairobi we will consider the next course of action,” said Mr Yumbya.

With her blood pressure running low, doctors worked to save her after realising that her intestines had been cut or punctured during a botched procedure to enlarge her breasts.

“Her intestines were cut during the cosmetic operation, making all the waste leak and spread within her stomach, which is an infection known as sepsis,” a family member said Wednesday.

It is not clear how Ms Wanza developed complications in her intestines since liposuction does not involve a scalpel or cutting tool.

Victor Ber breaks silence on accusations of frustrating Churchill Show artistes

BY KEVIN KOECH

Churchill Show Director Victor Ber has responded to claims of frustrating Churchill Show comedians.

Comedian Zainabu Zeddy accused Ber of frustrating comedians, leading them to depression.

Speaking to Nation, Ber dismissed the claims, stating that despite the damning allegations made by Zeddy, they would still remain friends, adding that he was ready to invite her to Churchill show.

“Yes, without a doubt (I will welcome her). Since she wrote those things, I tried to keep it to myself, but she kept posting more and more and it wasn’t until Wednesday (July 8) that I picked up my phone and texted her and she called me back. I know her very well and when you watch the videos, she cannot edit the way they were,” Ber said.

The director read malice in Zeddy’s allegations, stating that someone keen on bringing down Churchill show was pushing Zeddy to heap blame on him and create a fallout within the team behind the award-winning show.

According to Zeddy, so serious is the situation that a number of comedians have sunk into depression before their eventual deaths.

Njenga Mswahili and Kasee are among the Churchill Show comedians whose recent deaths have raised eyebrows.

Zeddy revealed that sabotage is part of the game and so serious is the situation that Njenga Mswahili sunk into depression and was admitted an Mathari Mental Hospital.

“Ber never wanted any female comedians to succeed so that his wife could shine. That is the reason we have few female comedians.

“When Wanjiku put up her Comedy Queens show at KICC, the girls were threatened to perform,” posted Zeddy.

She added that Kasee who recently passed on was pushed to the limits and became homeless before her death.

Machakos: Woman delivers while relieving herself, baby falls into pit latrine

BY KEVIN KOECH

Doctors at Mwala Level 4 Hospital in Machakos County struggled to save the life of a newborn who fell into a pit latrine while the mother was relieving herself.

The 36-year-old mother had visited the hospital on Friday, July 10 for physiotherapy sessions among other treatments for different ailments.

She was assisted to access the toilet by her son due to her partial paralysis.

After she came out of the toilet, they heard the cry of a baby coming from the pit after which he called the nurses.

“We managed to get people to demolish the pit latrine and rescued the baby, who was alive. Preliminary examination indicates the new mother had carried the pregnancy to term,” Mwala Level 4 Hospital medical superintendent doctor Stephen Kitheka said.

He stated that the woman was not aware that she had been carrying a pregnancy until the incident happened.

“After rescuing the baby, we admitted the mother-and-child to a ward, where they were closely monitored. The infant was accorded emergency care and is now in stable condition. It is actually breast-feeding,” he added.

The case of the woman being pregnant without knowing is both surprising and rare but not unheard of.

According to medical experts, a cryptic pregnancy can go for months without being detected.

Sometimes the symptoms of pregnancy are only felt after the woman goes into labour.

Women who have cryptic pregnancies frequently don’t have or don’t notice morning sickness, abdominal swelling or weight gain as anything out of the ordinary.

Some may also not find the absence of their periods odd, perhaps because they normally have irregular periods or because they’ve taken birth control measures.

The foetal movement could also be interpreted as a stomach upset.
