Two people including a medic on Monday died after an ambulance belonging to the Nyandarua County government crashed on the Gilgil-Olkalau road.

Its driver and female medic died on the spot near Karunga trading centre, some 15 kilometres from Gilgil town. They had earlier on Monday morning ferried a patient to Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi and were on their way back to Nyahururu.

Gilgil OCPD John Onditi said that the driver lost control of the vehicle while swerving to avoid a pothole.

“In the process, the ambulance lost control and crashed into the roadside killing the male driver and the medic,” he said. The bodies were taken to Gilgil Sub-County Hospital mortuary while the  wreckage has been towed to Gilgil Police Station.

This she did via the tweet below.

‘I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+.’

 Below are some of the reactions

@MatthewMuhindi: Yeah lesbian couples can get kids @AnitaNderu, you can use the IVF method in vertro fertilization ..

In this option, one partner provides the eggs, which are fertilized with donor sperm, and the other carries the pregnancy… All the best. 

@Jwmungai: No one should be judged or accused of his or her sexual orientation…. Everyone has a right to what h/she thinks is right.

@Sesyline_KE: Funny Kenyans don’t know Lesbian couples can have kids, am happy for Anita, I really don’t mind who people choose to be with I hope in the future things change.

@Josefmasta: Whichever way you describe it a man will be involved even if it’s just donating sperms.

@Out_look470: For me and my body I shall always do what the Bible says,hakuna mahali tumeambiwa eti Sarah saw her sister and she bore her a son named Isaac. Hakuna!

All about subdural hematoma, condition Nameless’ dad has been suffering from

Published

on

Kenyan artiste Nameless has revealed that his dad has been ailing from a condition known as Subdural Hematoma in medical terms.

A subdural hematoma is a collection of blood outside the brain. It occurs when there is a head injury.

The bleeding is under the skull and outside the brain, not in the brain itself. As blood pools, however, it puts more pressure on the brain.

In the case of Nameless dad, the condition had led to clots in the head which in turn were causing minor strokes.

Below are things to learn about the condition.

There are different symptoms to Subdural hematoma and some include

  • Confusion
  • Headache
  • Change in behavior
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Lethargy or excessive drowsiness
  • Weakness
  • Apathy
  • Seizures

The symptoms in subdural hematoma patients are not standard, it varies from one patient to another.

The conditions that influence the symptoms one has when battling subdural hematoma include

  • The size of the hematoma
  • Age of the patient
  • Other underlying medical conditions

Hematoma is majorly caused by a head injury, such as from a fall, motor vehicle collision, or an assault.

The sudden blow to the head tears blood vessels that run along the surface of the brain.

A subdural hematoma can be diagnosed using imaging tests, such as a CT or MRI scan.

Your doctor may also give you a physical examination to check your heart rate and blood pressure for evidence of internal bleeding.

An acute subdural hematoma can only be treated in an operating room.

A surgical procedure called a craniotomy may be used to remove a large subdural hematoma.

It’s normally used to treat acute subdural hematomas. In this procedure, your surgeon removes a part of your skull in order to access the clot or hematoma.

They then use suction and irrigation to remove it.

Results of hematoma may include

  • brain herniation, which puts pressure on your brain and can cause a coma or death
  • seizures
  • permanent muscle weakness or numbness.

A young honest Kenyan man has wowed netizens after returning a huge bundle of notes he found in a Kenya Mpya bus to the original owner.

In a lengthy post, Paul said he boarded the bus at around 10:30am at Allsops on Thika Road and sat at the back seat.

“On reaching Witeithie, several people alighted and I moved to the front seat as the bus continued with its journey. As we passed St Vincentian, I saw the bag that was zipped and I dragged it with my leg. On touching it I felt there was something inside. When I disembarked, I went and sat at Uhuru Park in Thika opposite the police station. When I opened it, I found some bundle of notes.

“Something was telling me to keep the money so as settle some bills I had but I decided to talk to some of my friends. 80% told me not to keep it . One mzee told me, Captain, I know times are hard and maybe today was your lucky day, but still maybe God used you to see this money because he knew it will be in safe hands so you can give it back to the owner. And I agreed with him. I also remembered that my parents told me not to eat what does not belong to me,” he recounted.

Appeal for owner

After making a decision to return the cash, the Kenyan made an appeal for the owner to claim it.

“If you boarded a Kenya Mpya bus today at Allsops and alighted at Witeithie, please in-box me your money is safe with me. What you need to do since there is no any identification documents; tell me how much you lost, the type of currency notes (i.e how many 1000 and 500 notes), what you have used to wrap the money and with that, I will know you are the owner and we agree where to meet I hand over your money,” he explained.

A few hours after sharing the news, Paul received a message from a lady named Jacklyn who gave him the exact information he needed saying the money belonged to her sister who did not have a Facebook account.

“At last I got the information I was looking. Thanks to those who believed in me, I can now sleep in peace.

He later shared a live video delivering the money to the owner.
