PS Omolo still at private wing as police probe if she’s sick
Suspended Youth and Gender Affairs PS Lilian Omolo is still at Kenyatta National Hospital, two weeks after she reportedly fell in court.
Acting KNH chief executive Thomas Mutie refused to divulge Ms Omollo’s sickness and details except to say that she was still in the private wing of the hospital.
“We are not allowed to release such details to the press without a patient’s consent,” Dr Mutie said.
He also refused to say if a doctor appointed by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations had examined her.
DCI chief George Kinoti had said he would organise for a doctor to examine the PS later on Monday.
Prime Care private wing deputy head Julia Tinanga also refused to reveal the patient’s details.
Last Wednesday, the Anti-Corruption Court directed the police to visit Ms Omollo in hospital and find out if she is admitted.
SHIELDED FROM REMAND
A team from the DCI is investigating the Ministry of Health and the Prisons Department regarding her admission, which has raised concerns that she is being shielded from remand life by powerful colleagues and State officials.
A letter from the hospital on Thursday asked that she be excused from court sessions, but the DCI wanted an independent doctor to examine the PS.
According to the medical report signed by consultant physician Stanley Ngare and presented in court, Ms Omollo “is still not stable enough to attend court proceedings and requires continued care in hospital”.
