The baby was admitted at the Emergency Unit only to be told later that he had had passed away. 

The baby’s father Mr Jonathan Muendo, a journalist with KBC, confronted the security guards after they locked the gate to prevent journalists from entering the hospital. 

The hospital administration did not address the press on the incident.

However, a letter from the hospital written to Montenzuma Funeral Home, where the body was taken, acknowledged that the baby had died at the facility.

Two nurses were arrested and recorded statements with the police. The baby’s parents also recorded statements with the police. 


The incident happened barely a month after a woman delivered a baby on the floor at Shalom Hospital’s, Athi- River branch as nurses took tea.

It emerged that the said nurse was not qualified to practice. The Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board CEO Daniel Yumbya ordered further investigations. 

The board has been accused of not cracking the whip on the hospital even after receiving numerous complaints from the public.
