She was supposed to leave the hospital on September 15 but the hospital administration decided to detain her in hospital untill her bill
was cleared. Numerous Fundraisings were held in their Juja Home raising a total of over KSH.157,000. Last week, Stanley Kihara
inboxed Ndege Serikal of the ordeal and Ndege Serikal promised to look for ways and means of
raising the balance so that Stanley’s mother could leave the hospital as soon as possible. Ndege serikal approached the Dean of students, who pledged 50,000 but hasn’t honored his pledge to date. The DVC(student affairs) gave out Ksh. 75,000 and Dr.Nying’uro, Dr Kivuva and Dr Adams Oloo collectively raised Ksh 100,000 for their political science student.
Kondir Luther colly, Philip Nyamai, Apiyo Apiyo and I raised a total of Ksh.85,000.
Even after raising this amounts, there still remained an enormous balance of over KSH. 750,000. However, on monday night Ndege Serikal met Babu owino at his Karen Home and told him of Stanley’s ordeal, which he promised to look into. Yesterday evening Babu contacted Ndege Serikal to meet him in town, and later on, they left for Thika. They picked stanley at Juja town and went straight to Thika Level 5 Hospital. Luckily, they met the hospital
administrator(Mr Ndung’u)in his office. Babu asked for the balance.
Two pretty nurses quickly brought the printout of the bill totalling KSH. 767,524.50. Babu went back to his car and came back with a
black leather bag, placed it on Mr Ndung’u’s office table and counted ksh 768,000.00 . The administrator immediately signed the discharge
form for Mrs Elizabeth Kihara and ordered for her immediate discharge from Hospital.
Later, it was all smiles when Elizabeth entered her home and was wholeheartedly welcomed by her children, relatives and neighbors.
After an emotional prayer from Stanley’s uncle,we were served sweet coffee and delicious snacks. The family was so thankful of our visit and thanked God for His blessings.
We left their Juja home at 9pm and reached Nairobi an hour later.
This morning i prayed and thanked God for Great friends like Babu owino. True friends who mean what they say and say what they mean.
