Story/Reuben Olita

Busia Deputy Governor, H.E Moses Mulomi has decried the brutal murder of a senior nurse at the Busia County Referral Hospital (BCRH), the late Anna Achieng Mung’ayo.

Addressing mourners during burial mass at Busia Airstrip grounds, the DG called for thorough investigations into the brutal murder of Mung’ayo who was until her death a Nephrologist in charge of the renal unit at the BCRH.

” We can’t allow thugs to hold the county at ransom by shattering the lives of innocent residents; we shall work with law enforcement agencies to help unravel such macabre killings,” he said.

H.E Mulomi said death has robbed the county of a workaholic who discharged her duties with dedication and was due for retirement on 25th December, 2021.

Fr Marcellus Ouma in his sermon told christians not to fear those who kill the body but cannot kill your soul or spirit. “Fear only God who can do both.”

The late Mung’ayo’s colleagues including Chief Officer, Jonathan Ino and directors, Dr Melsa Lutomia and Dr Janerose Ambuchi eulogized her as a committed nurse, a matriach, a dedicated and passionate worker whose services as a Nephrologist will be greatly missed.

They condemned her killers, urging the police to ensure Mung’ayo’s killers are brought to book.

The late Mung’ayo was murdered by unknown assailants on 12th, September, 2021 moments after returning from a conference in Arusha, Tanzania.

Regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, the Deputy Governor said the Covid vaccine will be cascaded to lower facilities including dispensaries to enable many people get the jab.

” Those who have already gotten the first jab should go for the second, while those who have not received the first dose should get it,” he said.

The emotional service saw the late Mung’ayo’s colleagues give her a befitting sendoff by lighting candles. Fredrick Omiah from the Ministry of Health headquarters led the nurses in reading the Kenya Nurses pledge.

The nurses also sang a special song ” Kenya Nchi Tunayoipenda” in honour of their fallen colleague. Male nurses had earlier led the parade carrying Kenyan flag as other nurses followed with white nets.

The deceased has left behind two daughters including Gloria Akinyi who is an Assistant County Commissioner in Nyandarua County.
