TEENAGE BOY DETAINED IN TOILET FOR FIVE DAYS AT ISIOLO HOSPITAL OVER UNPAID BILL
A 14-year-old boy has been detained in a toilet at the Isiolo Level 4 Hospital for the last five days after his family failed to hospital bill.
Francis Kiplagat while narrating his ordeal to the press said guards at the facility ostensibly on instruction from the administration grabbed him from the hospital bed and locked him inside one of the toilets.
His mother took him for treatment at the hospital after he suffered stomach complication but deserted when she realized she was unable to settle the bill.
Speaking to the press Isiolo County Women Representative Tiya Galgalo and Isiolo North Member of Parliament Joseph Samal said the boy was treated to food left-overs and did not get any medication for the five days he was locked inside the toilet.
The leaders who got a tip off from cleaners at the hospital ordered for the immediate action against the hospital's administration over the heinous act.
The case has been reported to the Isiolo deputy County Commissioner David Kipkemei
