The family of the late University of Nairobi lecturer, Professor Lincoln Khasakhala has sent a passionate plea to Kenyans of goodwill for support in raising Ksh.18 million towards his medical bill.
The late lecturer’s brother, David Khasakhala said Prof. Khasakhala was admitted at the Nairobi Hospital’s Critical Care unit on 3rd July 2021.
He had been at the facility for the last six months undergoing treatment that included dialysis on weekly basis.
The bill had accrued to Ksh.21,272,326.
” The family paid the bill partial by raising Ksh.2,982,458.00, leaving a balance of Ksh.18,081,505 which has become a nightmare to raise, thus the appeal,” David said.
Prof Khasakhala passed away on 8th January, 2022. To date his body still lies at the Lee Funeral Home.
The family has been asked to clear the bill before the body can be released to them for burial, he said.
