MSF ambulance comes under attack in Mathare

MSF has twelve emergency response teams stationed in Homa Bay, Kisumu, Nairobi, Mombasa, Garissa & Embu counties.

An MSF ambulance was attacked in Mathare earlier today while picking a patient and one of its staffs harassed.

As a result, MSF has called for the respect of medical personnel and facilities as they strive to provide critical emergency care to Kenyans of all backgrounds and ethnicities.

Kenya today held repeat presidential elections after the August 8 Presidential poll was nullified by the Supreme Court citing illegalities and irregularities.

The election was largely peaceful albeit with low turnout, only a few arrears reported incidents of insecurity.

In Kisumu, a stronghold for the opposition voters kept away from the polling stations and youths engaged the police in running battles as they attempted to cripple the electoral body from conduction or distributing electoral materials.

MSF treated 19 wounded Kenyans with four having gun shot wounds across the country.

Ten patients with two having  gunshot wounds were treated in Kisumu County while four casualties were received and treated at the MSF clinic in Eastlands, Nairobi County.

Médecins Sans Frontières has twelve emergency response teams stationed in Homa Bay, Kisumu, Nairobi, Mombasa, Garissa & Embu counties equipped to handle any poll related injuries.
