Quack doctor goes missing after operating on 6-year-old boy

After a 6-year-old boy was operated on by an allegedly fraudulent doctor, a family from Machakos County was left in shock.

The father claims that his son was brought to Machakos Level 5 Hospital for treatment after he developed a swollen hand that was thought to be a cyst.

According to the father, the surgeon estimated that the procedure would only take forty minutes, and his son would require hospital admission.

But following the procedure, the little child’s condition worsened, and he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), while the surgeon absconded.

The father claimed that the hospital had refused to allow him to see his son following the procedure.

He thought the hospital was hiding the possibility that his son had died in the intensive care unit.

The father revealed that he had been contacted by a hospital doctor who advised him that only two members of his family ought to be present.

He has been unable to find his son or the doctor, so his attempts to contact the Ministry of Health have not been very successful.

Although the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council (KMPDC) was also made aware of the situation, the family has not received much assistance.

The distraught father has requested that the appropriate authorities expedite the investigations and detain the perpetrators.
