    "Former Commissioner of Police Duncan Wachira suffered heart attack three months ago. He's undergoing treatment at Apollo Protocol Hospital in Chennai India. Thank God he's stable but the family exhausted all savings," he divulged.

    Further, the politician urged the government to aid Wachira in offsetting the bill. 

    "Government of Kenya/Uhuru stand with Duncan in sickness. He stood with GoK in health," Maalim pleaded.

    Due to the rot in the health sector in the country, renowned Kenyans prefer to seek medical assistance abroad. 

    Recently, gospel singer, James Ngaita Ngigi, popularly known as Jimmy Gait, flew to New Delhi in August 2019, for a throat condition. 

    The entertainer announced that he would formulate a petition to improve the state of medical practice in Kenya. He accused practitioners of misdiagnosing patients or sending them to seek treatment abroad for kickbacks.
