A surgeon at the heart of investigations into a botched breast surgery tried to reach out to the victim’s family at her funeral, fresh court filings have now revealed.

Mr Joseph Mulupi, the husband of 33-year-old June Wanza who died after the procedure at Surgeoderm Healthcare, said Prof Stanley Khainga made several frantic efforts to “settle the matter amicably” before he filed a complaint against the surgeon and the clinic. She was admitted to Nairobi Hospital but died a day later.

Mr Mulupi filed a complaint against Prof Khainga and Surgeoderm before the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board.

Prof Khainga, however, sued the board and Mr Mulupi, claiming they have colluded to put all the blame on him.

The surgeon has faulted the board and Mr Mulupi for excluding Nairobi Hospital and its doctor Reuben Okioma, who was attending to Ms Wanza when she died.

The surgeon said Dr Okioma caused injuries to Ms Wanza’s neck which led to her death, hence should be a party to the board proceedings.
