Gospel singer Bahati’s appeals to President Uhuru over alarming number of cancer deaths

0

Gospel Singer Kevin Bahati has drafted a letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta urging him to do something about saddening state of Cancer treatment in Kenya.

Bahati who was highlighting the plight of children with cancer at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH),pointed out that since his last visit to the children’s cancer center two days ago, a kid he had taken a photo with had died.

  “Mr President do you see the picture above? It was taken barely Two days ago at Kenyatta National Hospital Cancer Ward bt as you are reading this (ABIGAEL) is No More.”

Pained, he said poor Kenyans were disadvantaged because they could not afford to go abroad for further treatment.

He further pointed out that KNH, the biggest referral hospital in East Africa and Central Africa, lacked resources to attend to cancer cases: “The Rich will go to private hospitals or Seek treatment abroad, what about Us the big Percentage of Kenyans that still can’t afford a Dollar a day??? KNH is the only hope to Us but Our dedicated Doctors & Nurses lack treatment resources. “

“Our Parents are tired of Helplessly waiting to bury their Kids”  The “Mama” hitmaker decried the number of cancer related deaths.

“Am not so educated to advice you on how to do this but as the Most Powerful Man in Our Country. Please Do Something coz we are loosing too Many.” Bahati wrote

Here is the letter:

#‎Dear President Uhuru Kenyatta

My Name is KEVIN BAHATI a Gospel Musician & Kenyan Citizen. I could have send this as a Private letter but it might take long before it gets to you so the URGENCY of this matter forced me to put it in Public maybe a fellow Citizens might read it to you.

One of the Promises I made after My song ITAKUA SAWA was “No More” sad Songs & Melodies but how- When I still See nothing to Smile About??? Mr President do you see the picture above? It was taken barely Two days ago at Kenyatta National Hospital Cancer Ward bt as you are reading this (ABIGAEL WANJIKU KAMAU) is No More.

Just after we’ve buried another 8 year Old Baby Charity. I Visited the same Kids Ward 5 months ago found more than 80 admitted kids and now on my Second Visit I find less than 30 new faces.. Not because they are healed but we’ve lost over 90% of this kids to the grave.

Mr President is CANCER not Treatable??? I understand we can’t save the lives of all this Patients but isn’t there a way we can Pro- long their lives by giving a standard Medical care??..

The Rich will go to private hospitals or Seek treatment abroad what about Us the big Percentage of Kenyans that still can’t afford a Dollar a day??? KNH is the only hope to Us but Our dedicated Doctors & Nurses lack treatment resources.

Mr President our Parents are tired of Helplessly waiting to burry their Kids. Our Biggest National Hospital ( KNH) has less than 3 Cancer Treatment machines which serve over 2000 patients.Meaning a Patient Can spend almost 2 years waiting for their turn to go through the Chemotherapy Machine! About 60 people die every Month; these are 15 people weekly; meaning we burry like 2 every day. Mr President from Our Hearts we Love you & I believe you Love Us too. Am not so educated to advice you on how to do this but as the Most Powerful Man in Our Country. Please Do Something coz we are loosing too Many.

From the Voice of the Voiceless.

Bahati Tena!!!
