CECM HEALTH SIDES WITH 6 COVID-19 PATIENTS TO DEFY THE MULTISECTORAL TEAM
Dr. Antony Walela is on the spot for colluding with an influential Sirisia family to frustrate the Commissioner/DCI offices and the isolation health worker’s directives to move 6 Covid-19 patients into Webuye Isolation ward. This comes after the demise of two sisters within one week over Covid-19 related illness, the last being buried on Friday, Aug 07,2020… The medical team in company of Bungoma County security team visited the Sirisia home and conducted tests on seven family members, 6 of them tested positive. The medical team then recommended that the 6 be taken to Webuye isolation ward a move that has been viciously condemned and fought by non-other than the CECM Health Antony Walela himself in partnership with the family.

Walela is said to insist on a homebased care approach contrary to what the health workers and the security team had recommended basing on their findings. He is said to be talking directly to the patients and giving directives to the health workers as desired by the patients’ family. One of the family members who works at National Housing Corporation is said to be a long-term friend to Governor Wangamati and Walela and since they are financially and politically correct they have made the CECM to be their spokesperson.
When the security and isolation teams visited the home with an ambulance… The family lectured them like kids and directed them (health workers) to consult their boss Walela. They insisted on being housed in an apartment of their choice a position supported by Walela. The CEC also lectured the security team telling them he is boss and that’s final.

In a rejoinder:
CECM Health, Dr. Walela insists that homebased care as launched by the National government must be embraced as he is projecting an upsurge of Covid-19 cases that our health facilities won’t be able to handle. In that line the CECM asked the Health workers and security teams not to be excited by the existence of Isolation ward which in his view accommodates severe cases only.
Chief Officer Health, Patrick Wandili said homebased care is part of the National Government policy on Covid-19 management. Nairobi and Kiambu have totally adopted this… we hope to launch ours this coming week
