Two of the Cuban doctors who were recalled from the border counties due to insecurities have been transferred to the Kiambu County.

Governor Ferdinand Waititu received the two doctors this week in his office.

“Kiambu County today welcomed 2 Cuban doctors. The two join 2 other Cuban doctors deployed to our facilities, said the governor.

The two doctors will be posted to Kihara and Tigoni regions. Kihara Level Four hospital has been on the spot for administering jabs to two babies resulting in amputation of their limbs.

On Monday, two more Cuban doctors who had been posted to hospitals in  Tana River county arrived in Nairobi.

Less than a month, ago two of their counterparts in Mandera County were abducted.

Immediately the government recalled Cuban doctors who had been posted to Garissa, Lamu and Wajir counties.

It is suspected that members of the al-Shaabab were behind the kidnap. The two remain missing as clan elders and both governments try to secure their release.
