Passaris slammed over statement on Pumwani Hospital incident

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Kenyans on social media turned the heat on Nairobi Woman Rep, Esther Passaris after her “misguided comments on the Pumwani incident.”

On Friday and Saturday, a clip circulated on social media showing a woman delivering by the roadside outside the Pumwani Hospital.

The nurses at the hospital appeared not to attend to her.

Instead, members of the public gathered around the woman to help as she went into labour.

The video clip enraged Kenyans. Many questioned how a country that claims to have free maternal care would allow that to happen.

Indeed, one of the current administration’s talking points has been about providing free maternal care to all mothers.

Speaking to the media, the Nairobi Woman Representative claimed that the huge crowd gathering has scared the nurses from attending to the woman.

“The public that had gathered in the area made a lot of noise, making the few nursing staff in the hospital scared of coming out for fear of being lynched,” Esther Passaris said.

The Nairobi Metropolitan Services sent out a press release.

The body apologised for the incident, stating that a nurse’s go-slow caused it.

“The Nairobi Metropolitan Services regrets the incident of a mother delivering at the gates of Pumwani Hospital.

“It has been confirmed that this took place on Sunday, 13th September 2020, two days after nurses began a legally notified go-slow, which has since ended after NMS and the Health Workers agreed on a Return to Work Formula,” NMS said.

Eventually, nurses attended to the patient.

However, what got many Kenyans angry were Esther Passaris comments on the matter.

Gov’t to build Sh1 billion museum in Turkana 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Work at Ngaren, the Museum of Humankind, commissioned by paleoanthropologist Dr. Richard Leakey is set to begin in 2022.

Located in Turkana, Ngaren is going to be Africa’s most iconic and technologically advanced museum.

This is because its set to be built at the location believed to be the cradle of mankind where Dr Leakey first discovered the nearly complete skeleton of Turkana Boy in 1984.

“Ngaren is not just another museum, but a call to action. As we peer back through the fossil record, through layer upon layer of long extinct species, many of which thrived far longer that the human species is ever likely to do, we are reminded of our mortality as a species.” Dr Leakey stated during an interview.

He further revealed that the museum would present over two million years of human history.

Standing 80 metres tall, the iconic structure is inspired by ancient hand axes and other primitive tools.

It was designed by Polish architect Daniel Libeskind, whose other works include the Jewish Museum in Berlin, Imperial War Museum North, Manchester; Denver Art Museum; Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco; Danish Jewish Museum; Royal Ontario Museum; and the Military History Museum, Dresden.

By May 2019, the project had raised Ksh400 million via online social investment platforms, with the overall project expected to cost more than Ksh1 billion.

The museum will employ the use of technology such as Virtual Reality (VR) headsets for visitors to be able to interact with the early humans and explore the lush green forest days of Turkana.

“Maybe we don’t want to exhibit the original fossils at all. Why don’t we have a room you come in to wearing a 3D headset and sit quietly in the middle of a band of Homo erectus moving all around you?

“That’s much more interesting than a skeleton of Turkana Boy behind glass,” the famous paleoanthropologist detailed.

The Turkana County government, which fully supports his vision, committed to upgrading roads and building an airport to usher in visitors.

Ngaren will run entirely from renewable energy with a zero-carbon footprint.
