NAKURU town MP Lee Kinyanjui has urged the government and private sector to invest more in buying cancer equipment and training of oncologists.
Speaking during the launch of the Nakuru Hospice in Nakuru town, the MP said the country suffers a shortage of cancer specialists. "The number of specialists and machines needed for cancer treatment have been outstripped by the ever growing population," said Kinyanjui.
Safaricom Foundation chairman Joseph Ogutu said the foundation is committed to reaching as many as Kenyans possible. "We want to ensure that we make the best out of the funds at the foundation to touch all that need them," said Ogutu.
