    “My sister demanded to be shown her baby’s corpse which the hospital’s management failed to provide,” he stated.

    However, the hospital management started dodging the family with no concrete information to give them.

    "This morning we were told that the management would give us a report on the matter at 2.00 pm which they didn’t,” he added.

    The Machakos County Director of Medical Services, Dr. Joel Mwova confirmed the incident, citing that the matter was under investigation.

    "I want to get a report from the nurses in charge so that I give you a comprehensive report,” Mwova cited.

    In another incident, police are investigating a case in which a woman and her baby died after she delivered at St Teresa hospital in Kiambu.

    The family is demanding answers as to what caused the death of the two.
