KCSE Candidate In ICU After Being Run Over by Military Bus

KCSE Candidate In ICU After Being Run Over by Military Bus.
The family of a Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidate who was run over by a military bus has written to the government.
Speaking to the media on Sunday, March 20, Halima Kinya’s family revealed that she is fighting for her life in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).
She was hit by a bus on Thursday, March 17, after finishing her KCSE exam at Waso Secondary School in Isiolo County that afternoon.
Kinya was taken to KNH for specialized treatment after suffering chest trauma and lower abdomen injuries, according to her brother’s account.
She was riding a motorcycle when she was hit by a bus.
The family is now demanding that the driver of the military bus be arrested and that the state chip in to help them pay their mounting hospital bills.
“They (military) took her to Isiolo Referral Hospital and abandoned her there. We had to raise Ksh20,000 to fuel the hospital ambulance to take her to Nairobi.
“We expected that having been injured by a state vehicle, the government should have intervened but we have been left on our own,” her brother told Nation.
It is believed that the bus was transporting soldiers at the time of the accident.
Isiolo County Police Commander Hassan Barua confirmed the incident and stated that investigations are still ongoing.
