During his tour in coast, President Uhuru Kenyatta lauched several projects among them the Msamweni County Referral Hospital that cost Sh 400 million in medical equipment.
Speaking after the launch, the President was not hesitant to disclose that he had been to many public medical facilities but the Msambweni hospital observed the highest level of hygiene.
“Na mimi nataka nishukuru Governor kwa sababu vile nimeona hospitali hii yenyu ya Msambweni. Nataka kusema mbele yenyu leo kwa sababu ukweli lazima usemwe. Mimi sijawai kufungua au kuzindua mashine katika hospitali ingine pahali popote katika nchi hii yetu ya Kenya ambayo imeng’ara kama hii hospitali ya Msambweni.” Uhuru said.
Uhuru was not hesitant to state that his comments were not meant to praise the Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya but were a fact that could be seen by everyone.
He further promised to support Mr Mvurya in providing an Intensive Care Unit at the hospital to upgrade the hospital for the locals.
