Parents of the 30 children from Busia County who suffered paralysis after getting an injection at a local dispensary have demanded compensation.
The parents have threatened to sue the county government if they are not given the compensation in 14 days.
They also want the county government to accept liability for the complications that their children developed, insisting that it failed in ensuring the medicine in hospital health facilities is safe.
The 30 children, all aged between one and eleven years, developed paralysis and drop-feet after receiving injections allegedly given by a nurse at Akichelesit Dispensary.
The demand for compensation by the parents of the children come even as the children continue to receive treatment and rehabilitation services in Nairobi Hospital.
The parents have, however, maintained that the county government has to compensate them for the mess.
The exact cause of the paralysis is yet to be established as investigations are ongoing.
