The body of the late Retired President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi has been taken to Statehouse Nairobi before heading to Nyayo Stadium for the national memorial service.

It was earlier expected that the late Moi’s body will leave the Lee Funeral Home straight to the stadium.

According to Retired Brigadier Ahmed Mohamed, Defense and Security adviser at the the Institute of International and Strategic Study, the body of the late Moi had to be taken to Statehouse in respect to his 24 years of service as the commander in chief.

“The issue of honoring our late President that he was there for 24 years. It is actually fair that the cottage passes there as the final respect before heading to the stadium. That is a great honor indeed and great respect to the former head of state,” he said.

Besides, the presence of Moi’s body at Statehouse will enable foreign heads of state to view Moi’s body and pay their last respect before heading to Nyayo Stadium to pay their last respect.

Ethiopian president Sahle Work Zewde and South Sudan president Salva Kiir had already arrived by 7.30am.

 Located opposite Vision Plaza along the Thika Super Highway, Equity Afia Kasarani has been established to meet the increasing demand for quality and affordable medical care, thus complementing services offered by the government, other private healthcare providers, and the already operational Equity Afia Kahawa West Medical Centre.

 On the other hand, the newly opened Equity Afia Kiambu Medical Centre is located at Pongezi Plaza along Kiambu’s Biashara Street. The new clinic is set to serve the residents of the growing Kiambu Town and the neighboring estates, eliminating the need to travel far in search of quality, affordable medical care.

 Commenting on the opening of the two medical facilities, Equity Group Foundation Executive Director, Reuben Mbindu said, “We remain committed to providing quality, affordable, preventive and primary healthcare services in Kenya. These two new clinics will go a long way in expanding our outreach network in Kenya allowing us to serve more people.”

Over the next few years, the Foundation targets to increase its outreach to all parts of the country.

 “Additionally, we are committed to the government’s agenda on universal health coverage and have already partnered with NHIF in offering services to the current active members under the various medical schemes. Our versatility and flexibility allow us to serve more Kenyans, therefore, improving their quality of life,” added Mbindu.

 Among the services offered include general consultation services, specialized clinics like obstetrics and gynecology, well-baby clinics, dental services, optical services, dermatological services, pediatric services, and nutrition services among others and are supported by well-equipped laboratories and stocked pharmacies.

Equity Afia is an initiative under the Equity Group Foundation that is using franchising principles to train and monitor a network of medical entrepreneurs, who are qualified alumni of the Equity Leaders Program (ELP).

The main goal is to ensure the sustained improvement of the health and well-being of Kenyans by increasing access to and utilization of quality, affordable, and standardized healthcare.

Kenya has sent back 182 foreigners that tested positive for the Coronavirus in the government to curb the infiltration of the virus from neighboring countries bordering the country.

Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said 214 people had so far tested positive for the coronavirus at the various border points with Tanzania out of which 182 of them were foreigners and had been referred back to Tanzania.

“Out of the 182 foreigners turned away at the Tanzanian border, 126 of them tested positive in Namanga, 24 in Lunga Lunga, 23 in Taveta, four in Isebania and one case in Loitoktok,” said Kagwe in a press briefing on Tuesday, May 19th, 2020.

In Wajir, 14 of the 16 cases recorded in the County had crossed from Somalia while two individuals who have tested positive in Garissa were also from Somalia.

Kagwe says the decision by the government to tighten up Covid-19 surveillance measures at the borders with Tanzania and Somalia could not have come at a better time.

“What would have happened had we not taken the measure of testing at the border is that these 182 people would now be in our midst moving around in our country and you can imagine the rate of infection this would have caused.”

“This is critical and might explain why the President took the measures he took the other day,” said Kagwe.
