Kenya: Sakaja Visits Dusit Terror Attack Survivor Abandoned By Ruto

11 February 2019

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has cleared the medical bill of a survivor of DusitD2 Hotel terror attack who was abandoned by Deputy President William Ruto.

DP Ruto had visited survivors of the attack at Kenyatta National Hospital and promised that the government will offset all their medical bill. The promise was never fulfilled.

The survivor, Emmanuel Omala, narrated his story to Citizen TV. During the bulletin, Sakaja promised to make up for Ruto's failure to honor promise.

Omala incurred a Sh100,000 medical bill. Hospital administrators told him to pay up because the terror attack was not declared a national disaster.

The 21-year-old delivery man paid Sh15, 000 and signed a deal to clear the balance in Sh3, 000 monthly installments.

Sakaja on Monday visited the hospital and cleared the Sh85, 000 balance. He also visited a recovering Omala at his house with two boxes full of shopping.

A happy Omala was pictured seated in his bedsitter with Sakaja as he sampled energy drinks and fruits brought by the senator.

Sakaja tweeted that he was glad to have visited Omala and asked Kenyans to pray for his full recovery.

Emmanuel Omala is such an amazing soul & represents the spirit of the Kenyan people. Glad to have visited him earlier on today and cleared his bill at KNH. He is recuperating well and realizes that after surviving 7 bullets, God has a great plan for him. Keep him in your prayers.
