Over the weekend, the Sonko Rescue team offered free pharmacy services, laboratory tests, eye screening and ultrasound scan services across the city.

At the Nyayo Stadium, Nairobi residents with eye problems were attended by opticians free of charge with some being given free spectacles.

On Saturday, the free medical camp treated 489 patients while over 600 were treated on Sunday.

“We are grateful to all those who attended our medical camps. To the doctors, nurses, laboratory assistants, opticians and oncologists, Nairobians are thankful words will never be enough and to those who are sick but haven't yet gotten an opportunity to receive medical attention, our camps are still open,” Sonko said.

Free dental services

In the coming week, the medical camps offer free dental services and transport to all patients who from different parts of Nairobi.

The Sonko medical camp has partnered with various private hospitals within the city where they will refer all the complicated cases.

“I am urging all our local leaders including my opponents to put our political differences aside and spread this news to all the residents within our estates and slums in Nairobi County.

Let us pray for our doctors and all Government officials involved in the negotiations on the doctors back to work formula so that Kenyans can stop suffering,” Sonko said.

Despite a seven day extension by the court giving the mediators more time to end the doctors’ strike, there is still no headway yet as the hard-line is still maintained by both the doctors and the government.

In a joint statement issued Saturday, Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) and the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) said that the talks were ‘still at deadlock’.
