Mr Osoro argues that Bosongo hospital formerly Bosongo Medical Center in Kisii town is being managed by a drunkard who is not even a medic.

He said his driver's wife lost a baby at the facility because of the half-baked nurses' negligence.

"We will use all avenues to expose the rot in Bosongo hospital. People's lives must be respected. Bosongo hospital must either choose to improve or close down," he said.

He maintained that the hospital must produce its relevant licenses and compliance certificates.

Osoro appealed to Health Cs Cecily Kariuki to ensure hospital operating as local kiosks are closed down.

"Kiosks masquerading as hospitals need to be closed down," he added.

The legislator further stated that the facility has caused unbearable pain to Kisii residents.

"The hospital can't claim to be big with not enough medical personnel. Our people are slowly being taken to an early grave while someone is smiling to the bank for serious chums," he lamented.
