Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has announced plans to rename Mutuini Hospital after First Lady Rachel Ruto.
Sakaja said his administration will give the health facility situated in Dagoretti South Sub-County a facelift before renaming it.
“We will be bringing a motion Mutuini hospital to rename it to Mama Rachel Ruto Hospital Mutuini,” Governor Sakaja said on Wednesday.
If the Nairobi County Assembly approves the motion, Mrs. Ruto will join her predecessors, who have health facilities named after them.
Former First Lady Margaret Kenyatta has a facility named after her: The Margaret Kenyatta Children Hospital in Mathare-Korogocho slum.
There is Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital, a level-5 hospital located in the Embakasi area. It was renamed in honor of the late former first lady Lucy Kibaki.
This could become the first facility to be named after the First Lady since the Kenya Kwanza administration came into office in September last year.
