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.
I dont believe that Sakaja independently decided to Name the hospital after the first lady...I am really curious as to who initiated the whole process. Of course as noted, naming hospitals after first ladies is not new.
May I suggest that the name should go to a Kenya women/lady who has done so much for humanity.This should not be hard to find.We have so many unsung heroines ...We need afew women to be nominated,and then a voted conducted to determine the winner.And if someone nominated the fist lady,well she would be one of the contestants.What say you people?
Sakaja had so much promise but this dude is just a regular street buffoon with a suit on. As Kibaki would say, “binadamu ya Mafi ya kuku”.
Is the first lady ok? we have started naming facilities like she is in the past. A few years ago, then US SECDEF Donald Rumsfeld presented a retirement award to Walt Hollis. But Hollis was not retiring, but he then had to immediately start his retirement paperwork.
