Onyango was arrested on Monday, hours after an incident in the hospital's Machakos branch where a 7-month-old baby died after he was allegedly injected with a lethal jab.

The MD was locked up at Machakos central police station where the nurse who allegedly administered the jab to the baby, Ethan Muendo, is being held with three other hospital officials who are being questioned about the incident. 

The incident comes a few days after a woman was filmed delivering at the reception of Shalom hospital, Athi River branch. 

Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua together with the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists board Chief Executive Officer Daniel Yumbya stormed the facility and ordered for its closure.

The hospital was given until 6:00 am, Tuesday, to transfer all patients to the nearest public hospitals including Machakos Level 5 hospital.

"My government has hereby revoked the permit for the hospital and the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists board has also revoked Shalom's operational license," Mutua said.
